This is our 7th year to do Fall Riot.. Fall Riot is the most evangelistic event that we do in our Youth Ministry. Fall Riot is 100% generated by the students inviting their friends to this one night open door, outreach event. We use social media, parent contacts, and radio station announcements to do so, we don’t spend a penny to promote.
We have over 50 adult volunteers to help with – inflatables, Free pizza (of course, I mean this is youth ministry), do Iphone giveaway (using a text service in the program to do this, they need to listen to message and they will get a text after the night that has a fill in the blanks and they must text back the “correct answer and be the first one to do it”) Our Jump Team (Children’s worship dance team) performs, Give a very simple visual message, have an invitation and then we Baptize those who made a first time decision and parents (We have them call their parents) have approved them taking this first step in obedience.
It truly is an amazing night! We love seeing the students get excited to bring in their friends to church and see life change happen… Here is a little recap video.
