Church Relations Hosted 36th Annual Thanksgiving Youthfest
Pepperdine University's Church Relations hosted the 36th Annual Thanksgiving Youthfest, a weekend of worship, fellowship, and growth for high school students, on the Malibu campus from Nov. 24 to Nov. 26. Directed and staffed by Pepperdine employees and students, Youthfest provides a unique opportunity for young people to experience the Pepperdine community. This year's program theme was Integrity 360.
Youthfest participants attended lectures and participated in many activities such as small group discussions, group activities, and a worship service on Sunday morning to conclude the program. Peter Wilson, Pepperdine alumnus and Worship Minister at the Sonoma Avenue Church of Christ in Santa Rosa, Calif., spoke on Friday night and Saturday morning. Gary Selby, Pepperdine Blanche E. Seaver Professor in Communication, spoke on Sunday. Won by One, the Pepperdine a capella singing group, returned again this year to perform.
