God has been doing some exciting things in the hearts of students in NYM this Fall. Our incredible leaders and volunteers are working hard to make an environment that is suited for spiritual growth, and from the number you're about to read, we think it's clear that God is blessing those efforts!
As for the specific cause of some of this growth - we're not sure we have an exact answer! It's likely a combination of the night of the week change, the option for free pizza and some increased excellence in a number of areas for our ministry. The bottom line, though? We're SO excited, and we're doing all we can to steward this momentum!
Thanks for your participation! If you love NYM, share these numbers!
Numbers aren't everything, but they matter to us because each number represents a student that is desperate need of the Gospel and a relationship with Jesus.
- For the last 3 weeks in a row, we have had over 100 students at NYM. That has never happened in NYM history before!
- At the Flannel Party we had our second highest attendance ever in a single week
- Nitro had 61 students on 10/28 - the most Nitro students in a single week, EVER!
- Our overall attendance is up 16% over this time last year
- We've had 54 new students in the first 9 weeks of Youth Group - that's about how many we had ALL OF LAST YEAR!
Keep praying! We can't wait to hear more stories of life change coming from this Fall!
