On This Day In History—March 14

In 1897, the first Salvation Army united youth meetings (Youth Councils) took place. This year The Salvation Army Youth Councils in Texas will be held April 5th-7th with “Take Time” Hosea 10:12 as the theme. An anticipated 600 young people from across Texas will meet at Camp Hoblitzelle for this 2013 weekend retreat!

The weekend is designed to help youth connect with God with powerful worship, exciting dramas, and creative messages that are relevant to what is going on in their lives today. We want, more than anything, for them to return home knowing what it means to love and serve Jesus and to have a relationship with Him.
