To Youthquake Members and Prospective Members - A Great New Era Awaits
A vehicle is great to transport youth, and we're still on a first come, first serve basis there. However, another thing which gives a sense of permanence is a location.
One night a week (Thursdays) we have had one, at 171 Aultman Ave. NW in Canton. We will also have special Saturday activities, too.And this summer, we expanded into Wednesday..
We also have opportunities for young people to work as independent contractors with yards, etc. so they can learn how to run their own business..
We’ve got great plans as we try to reach our area with the Good News of God’s wondrous salvation, which is given freely to whosoever will come. After all, whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Our Wednesday club was a miniature version of our Thursday evening program, taking place from 3-5 PM over the summer, with the same great things we have Thursdays. These include crafts, tutoring, games, YLTi, eventually Bible quizzing, and other things.
You can be part of God’s plan. How? Read on.
You can click above to join our Facebook group. Ask questions, share what God has done in your life, and bring other youth who may want to know Jesus or grow in Him.
While our minivan’s seating has to be set up in advance, and there’s a waiting list of youth who want to be saved, discipled, and growing in the Lord, you can always come to our activities with your own ride, though at times we'll need numbers in advance
You can get in touch with us to learn how to start prayer and devotion in your school. Even if you’re not in the area, through our e-mail we can guide you.
Though we no longer have our radio show, you can still e-mail us with questions. We’ve had visitors from other countries, we know God can use anyone, anywhere, just as He hears us and we can pray anywhere, anytime, about anything.
Remember that prayer changes things. It’s how God sustained us for 2.5 years without a van and for 31 years before that. That plus Godly living will attract people to you. We at Greater Canton Youthquake want to train you to minister to others. Just as our Lord Jesus Christ came to minister and to give His life, to pay the debt we could not pay for our sins, and to rise from the dead.
You may ask, “How can I minister?”
Have you called on Jesus Christ by faith to forgive you and save you from your sins? He lives in everyone who is saved through the Holy Spirit. He must be placed at the center of every ministry endeavor.If not, you can do so right now, the simple plan of salvation is listed at the left and expand on further on our R U Saved page.
We have begun the Youth Leaders Training Institute for youth who are saved and really have a heart for seeing their schools reached with the Gospel. Our goal is to have a Christian club in every high school in Stark County. You can be a part of that as a member, or as a student leader of one of these clubs. Young people can also have a cell group meet – we can help set it up with your parents or guardian – at your house which will encourage prayer and which will pray for the needs of others, among other things. As a YLTI youth we'll provide you with CDs of specific radio programs that we did, too - please see our Quest for Truth page. You can have them and give them out even if you’re not interested in YLTI. Why not let God use you to make a difference for Him?
Do you have less skill, less experience than we do? Yes, but you can draw from our experience. Remember the words of 1 Peter 3:15 when we are urged to be ready for those tough questions people ask? You can always call one of us, and you can always be sure that the Spirit will teach you what to say, even if that is to wait while you find an answer and then get back to that person – or have one of us call them.
You may say, “I have not lived for Him.” Then do so by recommitting your life today. The Lord has called you for such a time as this, so others may see an example of Jesus Christ. You are needed. Use the fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 to help. You need to represent Christ to the hurting, the weak, the one who does not have friends, who needs a helping hand or a gentle nudge in the right direction. You also are needed to be a representative of Christ to the bully, the popular, the one who seems to have it all, to help them see that this sinful world only has temporary pleasure. However, what Jesus has to offer will last forever, just like He told the woman at the well (John 4). For we will be known by our love, and this community can only be won to Christ through our prayer and our letting Him use us for His glory.
We can show a Godly example to those who need Him by our actions. He can use you young people to go out and reach your community and your school for Him. You can be an example of Jesus Christ for others to follow.
So, please pray, read your Bible, and know He has not left you alone. God is faithful, and will bring us a van in His time. But, He has called you *now* to be His disciples, to walk worthy of His calling, to be used of Him to bring others to the Lord. Would you know how to lead someone to Christ? (ABC - Admit, Believe, Choose/call is a good way to remember, for instance.) Can you lead someone in that single, sincere prayer of repentance that they are away from eternal life? I know of people who have led friends to Christ as pre-teens, so it can be done, because it’s God doing the work. You just need to pray and let the Spirit guide you, while studying to know the material yourself, so you can live for God and be approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.
So, pray and be active as followers of Jesus Christ. You are the Youthquake Ministry in action. Please, call us at anytime if you have a question or a prayer need. Our radio show's e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to tell your friends about our website.
We have a 6-passenger minivan for YLTI but please pray it keeps going!!!
We'll need a new one soon when Sal plans to return to full-time ministry (unless he gets enough missionary support before then), so trusting God to provide.
Why the King James Bible?
Click the picture below
Each person has to do this on their own. I had to do this, too. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.(Heb. 11:6)
ADMIT you're a sinner, and fall short of God's perfect glory. Since you're not perfect you can't save yourself from your own sin
We couldn't, either. But, God's Word says you must simply...
BELIEVE with your heart that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. He never sinned, yet He took our punishment for sin, when He died on the cross. Three days later, He rose from the dead.
If you've done A and B, all you need to do in that prayer is...
CHOOSE to CALL on Jesus by faith in Him alone to forgive you of all your sins. He will cleanse you from those sins, and make you new on the inside.
You are only a SINGLE, SINCERE PRAYER OF REPENTANCE away from life forever with Jesus in Heaven (John 3:16) and life more abundanly with Him here on earth.(John 10:10)

Please pray God brjngs good out of all the terrible deaths by giving our youth life and hope and bringing many to faith in Jesus Christ, the giver of that hope.
Please pray for spiritual growth of youth in YLTI plus one very special unspoken for one of our kids.
Please pray we can use our vehicle for the next few years to get many kids involved in starting prayer and devotions in their schools (YLTI) and our Thursday activities.
YOUTHQUAKE VAN STATUS
We raised most of the money to repair our '05 mini-van, and it's back on the road, but a small leak and wear and tear mean we'll need a newer one soon.
If you can help us buy a newer used one or especially donating one, please contact us All donations, including vehicles, are tax deductible.
Our van is vital for ministry activities as we help our youth make a difference for Jesus in their communities.
