Youth Rush is Student Literature Evangelism for today.

Literature Evangelism is a highly effective way of reaching souls for Christ! Through books, the Word of God is taken with students as they go door-to-door. Many students will find that the books they have, answer the very questions people have been asking! The Word of God is presented by smiling faces and life after life will be touched and transformed! It is a great way to share God’s love and at the same time help students with their school and finances.

From Sunday to Thursday, students go door-to-door. Before going out, students have brunch, worship, training, and finally prayer together as they head out to share Jesus with their community. Students will go out in teams which are guided by experienced and trained leaders. On days off, students will find leisure time to do their laundry, relax, and have fun together. Sabbath is an opportunity to share with local churches the spiritual experiences they had in the field, plus allows them to experience the Sabbath rest in a different light.
