I love youth ministry. I also love movies. When those two loves meet, it's a beautiful thing.
Tonight, I'll host the third Film Fest I've led in a youth ministry. The idea started two years ago in Arizona, and has evolved to include red carpet, interviews with the press, Oscar trophies, and some pretty amazing student-created films. The YouTube generation--and particularly for teens in the Canadian film capital of Vancouver--are all about making awesome movies to show to their friends. So we made an award show out of it.
Here's a two-minute movie explaining Film Fest:
Movies + youth ministry = awesome.
