More than 3,400 teens from Canada, United States, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands are at the iServe United Youth Congress in Orlando, Fla. April 6-10, 2011. More than 10,000 people are expected to arrive on Saturday, according to the event newsletter.
The United Youth Congress is made for teens ages 11 to 17 years old and is hosted by the Black Adventist Youth Directors Association (BAYDA).
The keynote speaker was Zach Hunter, an 18-year old author and founder of Loose Change to Loosen Chains (modern day anti-slavery campaign). General session speakers include Paula Olivier, Willy Ramos, Donald Rolle and Myron Edmonds.
The four-day event concludes Saturday night with a concert featuring Committed, Fred Hammond, 21:03, and comedians Bone Hampton and Broderick Rice.
Every night, a special prayer and offering will be taken to help out with the Japan earthquake and tsunami disaster response.
The congress plans to do a flash mob on Saturday at Univiersal CityWalk to promote Jesus. On Thursday, teens got a chance to go to Universal Studios for the night.
