The theme for the 15th Baptist Youth World Conference in Leipzig, Germany is Dive Deeper. Over 6,000 Baptist Christian young people from all over the world have gathered to explore the depths together; deeper into faith and community and worshiped together Wednesday evening during the opening session.
The day began with a short drive from Leipzig to Wittenberg where the BGCT Texas Baptist All-State Choir and Band presented a morning concert in Schlosskirche (Castle Church), the church made famous when Martin Luther posted some thoughts on the door in 1517. The singing of A Mighty Fortress Is Our God by the choir was especially moving as they were standing a few feet from where he is buried.
A few photos may be found here and we hope to have some new video tomorrow. We are attending the Youth Conference all day Thursday and the TBAS Choir and Band performs at the conference in the evening. Thanks for your prayers.
