WEST HARTFORD -- The Connecticut Conference released a new video today featuring highlights from the 2017 Youth Revival held at First Church of Christ in West Hartford on April 30. The Youth Revival is a signature event of the CT Conference Youth and Young Adult Ministries.
The theme of this year's revival was Anointing, in reference to scriptures from Samuel and Luke. Youth from around the state spoke about their calls to work for God and those moments that have empowered them.
The Rev. Da Vita McCallister, Associate Conference Minister for Leadership and Vitality, said in her sermon, "Anointing is a public act. It has to be public because we need people to remember when we forget why we're anointed."
The revival ended with several clergy and youth anointing participants with oil and blessings.
