We believe that God has given everyone of us gifts; these gifts are given not to make us look great, but to, in some way, bring glory to Him. In having Celebrate Life, we hope to help students find the gifts they have, develop those talents, and discover how God can use them to build His kingdom. it is also our hope that through Celebrate Life, those students will form relationships that will encourage their walk with God and become great bonds for years to come.
Qualifications to participate at Regional Celebrate Life will be held this year at Beaverton Church of the Nazarene. For more information contact: Beth Strong Northern Michigan District Celebrate Life Director Phone: (989) 750-3837 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Regional Celebrate Life (RCL) is where 1,000+ teenagers converge on our ONU campus to compete against each other as districts (we are 1 of 11) and worship together. It is also an event that encourages the development and abilities of our youth in the name of Jesus and builds relationships between the Central Region NYI and Olivet Nazarene University.This event takes place at Olivet Nazarene University (ONU) in Bourbonnais, Illinois on May 11-13.Events include but not limited to music, art, athletics, quizzing, writing, etc.We want every youth to recognize there is a talent they have that can glorify the King of Kings.As a district our plan is to leave sometime on the 10th and car pool down together to help alleviate cost and provide an extra day as a district for fellowship, practice (sports), and discipleship.
