“This event is significant for the youth in the Church because this is not only for their future, but most importantly, for their spiritual well-being, especially that they can be influenced by what they are watching, nowadays, in social media,” said Brother Denis Salvante, Light of Salvation (LOS) overseer of the Ecclesiastical District of Southern Ontario, Canada about the Christian Family Youth Summit on November 11, 2022.

Young and single members attended the activity in multiple venues. Together with their guests, they watched a video presentation highlighting the dangers of the wrong use of social media, which should be avoided. They also saw how the contents on the internet and social media platforms may affect one’s mindset and were, thus, advised to be responsible users.

More importantly, the attendees also received a biblical exhortation to safeguard their faith from falsehoods disseminated through social media content, and other channels for that matter.

After the video presentation and reminders, the young members and their guests proceeded to the socializing part of the activity.

“Through the guidance of the Church Administration, the Church members, especially the youth, will continue to prosper and progress when it comes to their faith. This will ensure them to receive the salvation, promised by our Almighty God,” Brother Salvante said.

“This event is important for us because we are the future generation of the Church. This will benefit us to succeed in our lives and remain steadfast members in the Church,” Carl Ferma, a Binhi officer from the Niagara Falls, Ontario Congregation, enthused.

“This [activity] is going to be helpful for all the youth especially to those who have been out of track in their life. They should attend this summit because it can help them to think about what they are watching in media,” Adrian Garcia, a guest, said. — With reports from INC News Section
