Hispanic Youth Federation Holds Youth Congress »
The Rocky Mountain Conference Hispanic Youth Federation (FEJA) held its annual youth congress at the Embassy Suites Hotel by Hilton in Loveland October 27-29, . More than 200 youth traveled from across the state to attend, 70 more than the previous year.
Pastor Ray Frometa, Youth Director of the Eastern Cuban Conference, flew in from Cuba to give inspirational messages with the theme Jesus---More than a Friend. The youth congress was happy to have the RMC Youth Director Steve Hamilton and his team attend to connect with our youth. Other events on Saturday included a concert by Pastor Frometa and a 50’s themed dinner at Adventist Christian School in Greeley.
“I hope the youth left with a commitment to make an effort in their spiritual life,” said Frometa. “No matter how weak they feel or what circumstances come their way, my hope is that they will tightly grasp unto Jesus.”
According to Edith Garcia, young adult at Rifle Hispanic church, the messages were well-received. “I personally was encouraged to reinforce and refine my faith and spiritual walk. I know that many others walked away encouraged to become leaders in their church.”
