2018 Ohio State Youth Convention Impacts nearly 650
With Salem Church of God serving as hosts, nearly 650 youth and leaders gathered together on the second weekend of November. During this weekend many kids made major commitments to Christ, were challenged to live their lives as created by God for purpose and worship, made new friends while cultivating older friendships, and ate lots of pizza!
Special thanks goes to Salem pastor, Steve Southards, Student Ministries Pastor Nathanael Lyon, and the whole Salem team for hosting this convention with a sense of joy and excellence.

Youth flocked to the front in worship when Inside Out led the services.
Pastor Nathanael Lyon can’t believe that the convention is running so smoothly. Thanks for opening Salem up to OSYC this year!
