According to Assemblies of God, the second annual "Trail of Hope" Native Youth Convention will be held at Trinity Bible College (A/G) in Ellendale, North Dakota, March 18-20, 2004 after receiving supportive response from the pastors and youth who attended last year’s convention.
The convention has three objectives:
1. To provide an opportunity for Christian native youth to encourage each other,
2. To help them understand their value to Jesus Christ and
3. To help them have a clear vision for their lives and their people.
Special guests include keynote speaker and TBC alum Dobie Weasel, pastor of Glad Tidings Assembly of God in Omaha, Nebraska, and a Native Ministry Leadership Consultant; and Joel Cornelius, pastor of All Nations Assembly of God in Bismarck, North Dakota, and the vice president of the A/G Native American Fellowship.
Also, separate convention workshops will be offered -- one track for youth, the other for chaperones and a concert by Fresh I.E. (Robert Wilson), a 2004 Grammy nominee for the Best Gospel Rock Album category, will be held, which is anticipated as the highlight of the convention.
A/G welcomes all high-school aged native youth to attend this convention. The preregistration deadline is March 15. The students' fee is $19; chaperones' $15.
