PHILIPSBURG – Led by Youth Pastor Trent Webster, 19 persons from the Good News Baptist Church left Sint Maarten to attend the International Baptist Youth Conference IBYC 2016 in Trinidad.
The trip was funded through the efforts of the youths and several members of Parliament, namely Members of Parliament (MP) Leona Marlin Romeo, MP Cornelius de Weever, MP Tamara Leonard and MP Maurice Lake.
MP Marlin Romeo is the assistant to the Youth Pastor and supported this conference as it is geared to developing and empowering young people for use in the Kingdom of God.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Changed, Live Like It.” It is important to highlight the positive initiatives of our young people stated MP Marlin-Romeo.
Tips were given to the group about taking safety measures while traveling and to remember that they were not only ambassadors for the Good News Baptist Church but of the island of Sint Maarten.
This meant that their actions will reflect both on the church and the country. The group was encouraged to have fun and embrace the information that they will receive during the conference.
