Teen Worship-Taking It to the Streets!

Go into all the world and peach the good news to all creation. Mark 16:15

Last week we had a different kind of Teen Worship. Instead of worshipping God upstairs at Evripidou Hall, we took our music to the streets and headed to the main square in Athens.

Imagine 52 youth walking with guitars, singing songs, clapping hands and joyfully singing praise to God as we paraded through the sidewalks with a vision to give HOPE to the city.

It was an awesome time. All glory and honor to God!

Nashville Rocks Athens-Year 2!

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Ps. 98:4

For the second year in a row, Christian musicians from Fellowship Bible Church, Nashville, TN came to Greece to encourage and inspire the Greek youth. The emphasis of this year’s worship conference was on equipping and train Greek worship leaders.

Thank you Carl Cartee, Rob Howard, Tim Head and Dan Vorm for sharing your love and talents and hearts with us.

Here what one of the Greek attendees had to say about the weekend:

I was really blessed by the FBC's guys that came to serve us in their own ways and to show us how to be better worship leaders.

The best lesson for me was the way they were worshiping God. Although they did teach us a lot of things about how we should lead our groups, their worship times were the parts of the weekend I was stoked about the most.

Since I was a little kid, I dreamed of heaven like a really cool worship time with great "worship bands.” I always imagined that when we stand before God, we will be really happy, with huge smiles on our faces and we will be pouring our hearts out singing. That was exactly what I saw in those guys' faces during the first worship gathering and it was exactly how I think worship should be.

Pouring our hearts out again and again until we are called to go back home! :)
