Education: Pfeiffer University hosts event for youth ministries, groups

Stanly County is guaranteed to come alive on Sunday nights. As an outreach of the Village Church at Pfeiffer University, a series of events called Sunday Night Alive! will be held at 6 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month for area youth groups. Groups of any size are invited to join these special praise and worship festivities, which will include concerts and presentations by popular artists and individuals who appeal to young worshippers. These events are offered free of charge.
“The intent is to grow this ministry over the next year and outside input is encouraged as Pfeiffer strives to help youth ministries and youth groups thrive,” said Rev. Dana McKim, minister to the university.
The first event will be held in the Henry Pfeiffer Chapel on Sunday, Sept. 20 with performances from “The Sight and Sound Tour,” which will feature worship and concert by Four Days Late, a testimony and gospel presentation by a band member, and a performance by Ohio Avenue.
These events are made possible, in part, by a three-year $67,630 gift to the Village Church from The Duke Endowment to support a multifaceted cooperative youth programming initiative in Stanly County. Several churches in the Albemarle District of the Western North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church are assisting in the initiative. Pfeiffer claims one of the largest youth ministry degree programs within the United Methodist System.
For additional information, contact Rev. Dana McKim at (704) 463-3409 or dana.mckim@pfeiffer.edu.
