There were about 130 kids there, and a handful who were excited about worship. We got some of them jumping and most of them clapping. We ended with How Great is Our God, and everyone who wasn't engaged for the first five songs got into it. From the first line Athena and I quit singing because you could hardly hear us over the crowd anyway. Sweet. The last chorus we let them sing all by themselves and it was amazing. What moves God's heart more than a room full of teenagers singing, "How great is our God?" I don't know.
And I was so impressed with our team (as were a couple other youth pastors who were there, from what I understand). Most of the crowd was at least attentive, but I never felt our team get discouraged or annoyed or anything. Everyone had fun, played well, and really gave their all.
Best of all the Holy Spirit found our worship worthy to breathe on, and His presence was electric by the end. I'm praying, now, that students will remember that and not write Him off. Below are a couple shots Marianne took.
