Unite races into its third year by adding a new dynamic to Baptist Children’s Homes’ youth evangelism event. Christian stunt riders Outcast BMX will bring their high-flying show and gospel message to the event on Saturday, October 17 at Mills Home in Thomasville.
Outcast BMX is joined by Curtis “C.Z.” Zackery. The Liberty University graduate will share the gospel message as both speaker and entertainment for Unite.
While Zackery has not been involved with BCH in the past, he has spoken to children served at a sister home for children in another state.
“I was incredibly impacted by the conversations and the tangible ministry opportunities that presented themselves,” Zackery recalls. “I look forward to having meaningful conversations at Unite about Christ.”
Youth groups from across the state are invited to attend the free event. The groups are encouraged to bring unchurched friends. Free food, giant inflatables, a dodgeball tournament, and additional games are slated to begin at 11 am. The event concludes at 4 pm.
Dodgeball is limited to 16 youth teams. Spaces are still available on a first come, first serve basis. Teams can register at www.standupunite.com.
For Zackery, BCH staff members and event volunteers, the most important aspect of Unite is furthering the gospel. At BCH, 80% of the residents who come into care are unreached for Christ.
“Through Unite, I hope people are drawn to the love, beauty and hope in Jesus,” Zackery says.
Unite needs event volunteers! If you are interested in helping, call BCH’s Tabitha Ward at 336-474-1234.
