Fayetteville State University Hosts 700 Youth for Week of Service

Date: June 24, 2019

Approximately 700 teens from throughout the East Coast and Midwest have come together at Fayetteville State University (FSU) for an exciting week of service learning, fun, and empowerment, culminating with a massive meal packaging event to feed nearly 50,000 hungry people locally and from Africa, June 26, 8 a.m. to noon in FSU’s Capel arena.

The Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Society, Inc., will host its 65th annual International Youth Seminar at FSU through June 27. The youth seminar is part of the organization's International Youth Development movement, which is designed to help churches nurture new generations of leaders for the world.

The youth, mostly teens from Georgia to Connecticut and several Midwestern states are expected to package more than 50,000 dehydrated, high protein and highly nutritious meals for local agencies and the hungry in Africa.  

The youth seminar promotes community impact, biblical study, dynamic worship, and Christian fellowship.

The Lott Carey Global Christian Missional Community works throughout the year to provide young people from across the globe the opportunity to serve those in need and change the world, one life, one family and one community at a time.
