Churches Cooperating Together to Lead Students to Christ

Churches Cooperating Together to Lead Students to Christ

Throughout February, over 2,250 students from across the state gathered for ONE Night.

ONE Night is an evening of games, worship, and teaching to engage middle and high school students with the hope of the Gospel. In total, students from 77 churches took part in one of three ONE Night events near them in Spartanburg, Laurens, or Myrtle Beach.

Shane Pruitt speaks to students at the ONE Night event in Spartanburg.

Sharing Truth

At the event in Spartanburg, speaker Shane Pruitt reminded students of who the Lord made them to be, their purpose, and their need for Jesus. Pruitt is the National Next Gen Director at the North American Mission Board.

“You’ll always feel like something in your life is missing because someone is missing. And his name is Jesus,” Pruitt said.

After high-energy worship, speakers presented the Gospel, and students were given time to respond. In all, 280 students responded to the Gospel. Other students responded to a call for repentance, and others responded to calls to ministry and missions.

Students enjoy games and food before ONE Night begins.

Cooperation at Work

Adam Venters, Baptist Collegiate Minister at the University of South Carolina, attended the event in Spartanburg and said, “Seeing life change never gets old. It is incredible being at ONE Night.”

“This is South Carolina Baptist cooperation at work,” Tony Wolfe, SCBaptist Executive Director-Treasurer, said. “This is possible because there are half a million SCBaptists across the state who are pooling their resources to the Cooperative Program because they believe in it.”
