Helsinki - Rock The Planet!

Added 13 May 2000 View full list    Print version    
Helsinki, Finland may be among the world's leading cities for the use of the Internet, but it has never had a reputation for being a creative, cutting-edge city when it comes to church life.

But all that is changing!

Mika Yrjola and the team at Youth Alive Finland are now drawing 1200 young people to every Youth Alive event. In early May, the 'Rock the Planet' event almost filled one of the city's best theatres. Gospel Gansters (USA) were the featured artists, and Mal Fletcher the speaker. The music was high energy and the heart was ministry to peoples' needs. The local Youth Alive band were also a real hit - they just keep getting better.

As with all the events based on the Next W@ve model, this one brought together powerful contemporay worship, in-your-face preaching, a public call for commitment to Jesus AND a great concert. Not bad for Helsinki!! And the best is yet to come.

Please pray for Mika and the team as they break new ground in a city that desperately needs a contemporary GenX and GenNeXt presentation of the good news.

I was only able to attend one of your meetings in Spain, but I really needed to hear what Mal Fletcher had to say. His message was brilliant. Thank you so much for coming!

Mal, I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for your wisdom & grace in writing the article on why Christian leaders sometimes fail. I'm sure it has helped many people to be able to answer questions from others...
