Students perform in the hope of a revolution

May 23rd, 2012 | By | Category: Latest News, News

A TEAM of students from Equippers Bible College in Auckland is performing in New Zealand schools to help young people plan their futures.

The group calling itself The Revolution Tour or Revo is booked to visit 150 schools around the North Island.

Otaki College student Anya Alexander-George says college students everywhere were excited to see what Revo was going to bring into their town.

“It gets kids off the streets and enjoying the nights they are here. It also helps kids to realise the opportunities we have living here in Otaki. They’re awesome. Keep ‘em coming!”

Revo holds night rallies in various towns, performing songs, dances and skits, while teaching about the bible at the same time.

The group’s purpose is to preach messages that are relevant to young people so that they can get connected with their local youth group, get off the streets, and make a plan for their lives.

Pastor Reggie Dabbs, well known among teenagers, is the guest speaker this yearat all of the night rallies. His main theme this year is: “You can make it”.

He says he doesn’t think a kid would say “everyone’s telling me I can make it and I’m sick of hearing that”.

“Kids need as much motivation, encouragement and love as they can get,” says Pastor Reggie.

Revo tour the North Islands schools annualy, and have just finished touring the Manawatu region.

They have performed in schools from Foxton to Paraparaumu and held their night rally last Friday night in the Otaki Memorial Hall.

Local pastor, Mike Taylor and his wife say they expected to fill the Memorial Hall, and their expectations were certainly met.

Pastor Mike says they hope to have at least 80 people interested in joining the youth group now.
