Pastor Steve Igo and members of the Youth Group from Cedar OPC in Hudsonville, Michigan, took a short-term missions trip to Key West, Florida, over their Spring Break from March 31 to April 8, 2017.
Before leaving, Pastor Igo shared with us:
“It is hard to believe that it has been over 10 years since Cedar OPC sent a team to visit Pastor Bill Welzien and the saints at Keys Chapel OPC. While there, Cedar youth hope to both learn and serve in ‘Bible Bill’s’ ministry of evangelism at the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square in Key West.
“Why are we going on this trip this spring? Well, this past year, the Cedar Church Youth Group studied the topic of ‘Christian Apologetics’ in our Sunday evening youth group meetings, utilizing such great video-based resources as: The Ask Curriculum by Ravi Zacharias Ministries, Reasons for God by Tim Keller, and Faith Path by Mark Mittelberg. Now, Cedar youth hope to learn even more from one of the OPC’s best apologists and active evangelists, Bill Welzien.”
The team received classroom training as well as practical experience in evangelism at the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square in Key West, where Bill Welzien has presented the gospel three times each week for over 30 years!

We look forward to receiving some testimonials from the team soon!
