Fallspointe Church wins community outreach contest

The winning team: Ignite Youth

This has been a banner year for Ignite Youth Group of Fallspointe Church in Wichita Falls, Texas. The group won $5,000 in a community outreach contest – and they got to meet Tim Tebow!

Youth Pastor Crystal Persick learned that the Wichita Falls Nighthawks, the town’s semi-pro football team, was hosting a contest to give a local youth group $5,000. The group had to submit a letter stating what they would do with the money if they won. Over 100 letters were submitted, and Ignite Youth Group was selected as the winner of the contest. On February 20, the group was presented a check at the opening game for the Nighthawks – and the presenter was none other than Tim Tebow.

“It was an incredible time for our youth group,” said pastors John and Laurie Leggett. “We are thankful to God & to the Nighthawks for giving us this opportunity.”

The money will go toward the church’s first ever “Keeping a Princess Heart” teen girls conference. Church leaders said the funds will cover the cost of a worship band, guest speakers, advertising, and food, as well as goodies and prizes for attendees.

“We want to make an impact on the girls in our community,” said Laurie Leggett.  “We want them to know they are loved. That they are beautiful daughters of God inside and out in a world that tells them opposite. We want to teach them to not be ashamed to wear their crown, because their Father is a King.”

The conference will take place Saturday, May 11. Girls ages 12-18 are invited to participate. For more information, visit fallspointechurch.com
