The Human Right

The Human Right movement was launched this week during the 2014 Assemblies of God National Youth Convention and Fine Arts Festival being held July 28-August 1 in Columbus, Ohio.

"The Human Right is to know Jesus and the movement is to make Him known," explains Heath Adamson, senior director for AG Youth Ministries. "This is the beginning of the launch that will continue through the Centennial and reverberate for years to come as we summon the world to come alongside this generation of students to fulfill the original mission of the Assemblies of God, which is the greatest evangelization the world has ever known."

Adamson says that during this week, the focus is on seeking the presence of the Lord and a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on this generation in light of Acts 1:8.

Friday evening's service from the 2014 Assemblies of God National Youth Convention and Fine Arts Festival is being live-streamed online. The live streaming of the evening service begins at 7 p.m. EDT. Tuesday's service, featuring the launch of The Human Right, is located in the archives section, found by clicking on the "Videos" link to the right of the viewing area.

"The evening services have been phenomenal," Adamson says. "The presence of the Lord has been the focus of our prayers, and I'm delighted that God has continued to surprise us with His rich presence. Students are encountering the presence of God as they are being urged to abide in Christ, abandon everything, and advocate for the gospel."

This year's national theme for youth has been "Limitless," which, in part, urges students not to limit what God can do through them. Speakers at this year's convention include Greg Steir, president of Dare 2 Share Ministries; Scotty Gibbons, AG national youth strategist; and Jason Frenn, Power to Change ministries.

As dozens of Fine Arts Festival categories are going on simultaneously, live streaming of the FAF preliminary performances is not offered. However, during Friday evening's celebration service, which will be live streamed, many of the Fine Arts Festival Merit Award winners will be performing.

Girls magazine covers the "need to knows"

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 - 3:31 PM CST

Peristeria
Peristeria is a free, online quarterly magazine for teen girls.

Role models, dating, coping with loss, fashion, etiquette, self-image, bullies, health - all from a Christian perspective - makes the national Girls Ministries free quarterly online magazine, Peristeria, not only popular with Christian teen girls, but with their parents as well.

"Teen girls have questions," states Katie Mattiuzzo, creator and editor of Peristeria. "Peristeria offers answers to those questions - and to questions that some girls don't realize they should be asking."

Mattiuzzo says that today's teen girls are hit with a barrage of "popular" messages from magazines, television and the Internet that may be politically correct, but have little to do with being a secure, godly young woman.

"The focus of Peristeria is to provide teens with commonsense, biblically-aligned responses to some of their most pressing questions, but allow them to have some fun as well," Mattiuzzo says. "The goal is to help teens develop into well-rounded, informed, secure, Spirit-filled young women who influence their culture positively rather than allowing culture to influence them negatively."

Candy Tolbert, director of National Girls Ministries, says the response to Peristeria, which premiered in fall 2011, has been overwhelmingly positive as both teens and parents have expressed their love for the magazine.

"We've also heard from leaders in Teen Girl Ministries who regularly use the magazine articles for discussion points and opening up conversations with their girls," Tolbert says. "It really is a wonderful magazine for teen girls, filled with advice you can trust."
