Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18
The need was seen originally for the youth of the High Country, but quickly branched out to reaching young people in more than 4 different states. We saw the broken hearts of many pastors over the spiritual condition of our young people and listened to their concerns and in December of 2014, after much time spent in prayer, preparation was made to host a meeting in April of the following year and to work hand in hand with Pastors and their churches to provide this special opportunity, in a positive, Christ centered, youth focused atmosphere. Around here we believe in teamwork! Over 30 churches came together to make our first meeting a huge success! Each year as long as God permits, we will have our main 3 night youth rally the last Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of April. Our quarterly meetings which have proved to be a great source of strength and encouragement are held in July and October. Rising to the Occasion Youth Rally is a ministry hosted by Victory Baptist Church in Newland, NC and Bibleway Baptist Church in Boone, NC. It is supported primarily by pastors and churches of the High Country. We hope that you will make plans to attend the next meeting.
