Weekly Bulletin 4/20/2014THE 46TH ANNUAL NORTHEASTERN YOUTH CONFERENCE WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST: It was a most historic weekend, over 1,100 young people and adults from 21 congregations and 6 states converged in Newark to attend one of our greatest Northeastern Youth Conferences, April 4-6, 2014. Brother Arnelious Crenshaw, Oklahoma City, OK, preached Sunday morning of the Youth Conference and did an outstanding job. On Friday, some 500 persons were present for the basketball games and witnessed Trenton/Willingboro defeat Long Island to become our 2014 Basketball Champions. Saturday was filled with speeches by youth, classes were taught by brother Wayne Conner, Trenton, NJ and brother Anthony Brooks, Newark, NJ. Brother Quinton Patterson, Huntington, NY, gave a very interesting and inspiring sermon on the theme “Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude”. Terrence Best, Jr., of Clinton Avenue gave the welcome speech, and Alana Brown and Donnelly McCants, Jr. spoke as youth from Clinton Avenue. Congratulations to Toure Cort, Roxbury, MA and to Alana Marrow, Morristorn, NJ who were selected as Mr. & Miss Northeastern Youth Conference during the pageant. It was super exciting to see so many young people in the worship service last Sunday. I want to thank everyone who helped to make this conference a great success.
