Christmas Concert by MN Teen Challenge and Mac Powell from Third Day.

As I mentioned briefly in the previous post, my family and I attended a Christmas Concert in the cities done by MN teen Challenge, with Mac Powell.
It was AMAZING. Seriously. I figured it’d be good, but it was beyond that.
It was held at a Mega-Church. I’ve never been in a Church that big. There were honestly a minimum of a thousand people there. The MN Teen Challenge Choir was superb, beyond astonishing. They sang Joy To The World, Angels We Have Heard on High, then there was a video, then a Welcome from the President of MNTC Then a lady from MNTC had a solo and sang Go Tell. Then a couple of them gave their testimonies. And oh my word, a lot of them were tear-jerkers. After that a guy had a solo and sang Mighty to Save, then there were some more testimonies that were amazing as well, then Born Again was sang, the first two parts were solos then Mac Powell came out and started singing! He was amazing too. His voice is grand and it was all awesome. Plus he didn’t take the spotlight – he brought it always back to MNTC, which was very cool. He sang some songs then. Born in Bethlehem, O Come All Ye Faithful were the first too. And on the O Come All Ye Faithful song, he asked the audience to stand up and sing with him. That was really cool. Then there was a video of a testimony, the gal in the video came on stage and talked a little bit with her husband as well. Then another song was song titled Jesus, Born On This Day and a lady from MNTC had a solo in it.
Then the Mission Pastor of the Church it was at came on and talked. If anyone there was not somehow convicted or extremely encouraged, then like he had said, they don’t have any switches. His message was hugely powerful, and you knew he meant it. And he just kept saying Bible verses that came to mind, and it was spectacular! When we prayed, I was crying. It seriously was an amazing time last night. God was there so strongly, and it was so up-lifting and encouraging! Some of the people in the choir of MNTC had only been there a couple days! In fact, there was a lady who had only been part of MNTC for 48 hours, and she was still there, part of the choir!
I can’t even begin to express how amazing and moving it was. You had to be there to understand. It left you feeling awed and inspired, amazed and hungry, wanting to pursue God like you never have before.
After the Pastors Message, they closed with Silent Night, and Mac Powel came out, and the audience sang with them again.
I am so glad we went. It was beyond any words.
