For a group of 550 students, six months of hard work came to an end with the conclusion of Regional Main Event held on the campus of Northwest Nazarene University.

Students honed their skills in a variety of activities for the opportunity to unite with likeminded Nazarene students in a weekend of worship and competition. This year’s theme centered on “one” community sharing their strengths and encouraging each other. Through worship and special speaker Chris Folmsbee, the director of Barefoot Ministries, middle and high school aged teens lived in community and experienced the larger corpus of the Church of the Nazarene. Folmsbee reminded them that, “God is calling you and me to live by the same kingdom values in the order of one.”

Congratulations to the following winners of scholarships to Northwest Nazarene University.
For their accomplishment in Bible quizzing: Isaac Mitchum, Josiah Mitchum, Danny Seymour, D.J. Langjahr and Jennifer Sunderlin; music: Melodee McGregor; vocal soloist: Andrew Raney; instrumental soloist: Roxanne Mitchell; creative ministries: Ashley Wetzel; art: Rachael Bower; writing: Eleanor Crosby.

One of the weekend’s highlights was the youth-worker challenge that combined Fear Factor with Hunger Games. Ryan Pugh (Castle Hills Church of the Nazarene) took home an iPad 3 for braving the imaginations of the coordinators who put 31 youth workers to mental and physical challenges on stage in front of their youth groups. The game involved three levels: the battle of the mind, the battle of the stomach and the battle of the will. Challenges included Christian trivia, consuming a concoction of unpleasant foods and solving math problems while dizzy.

Regional Main Event is co-sponsored with Northwest Region Nazarene Youth International. For a complete listing of Main Event activities, visit the NYI website here.
