A big name in college football will headline the youth worship service at Annual Conference on June 11,
Dylan Thompson, a junior quarterback for the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, is known for his winning pass late in the Outback Bowl to lift Carolina over Michigan – and for being a devout Christian so transformed by his faith that he is driven to make his story known.
Called “A 4:12 Story,” the youth worship service is set for Day Three of the four-day Annual Conference, which runs June 9-12 at the Florence Civic Center. Thompson’s keynote that Tuesday night comes at the end of a full day of intergenerational hunger mission, where youth, children and adults from across South Carolina will have packed 285,00 meals for desperately hungry people through the relief organization Stop Hunger Now. To help package meals, register online here.
While the service is designed to by youth oriented, the conference is encouraging everyone to attend the worship service.
Joining Thompson for the evening of Christian inspiration are Rachel Woodlee, a Wofford College senior recently named a Rhodes Scholar, and Brett Younker, a Christian music artist and worship leader.
Thompson also uses Twitter as a platform. Going by the handle @DT_ONE_SEVEN, one recent tweet shared, “Another day to lead and serve while pointing people to Christ.”
