Lubbock Church Hosts First Hub City Summit

June 30, 2023

LUBBOCK, TEX. – On April 14-16, the Lubbock Seventh-day Adventist Church and its Young Adult Ministry (YAM) hosted the first Hub City Summit. The Summit is an event designed to bring young adults together, introduce young people to the Adventist Christian Fellowship (ACF) campus organization, spread the love of Jesus in the Lubbock community and pray for the Holy Spirit. Approximately 40 young adults from cities across the Texas and Texico Conferences attended the event, coming from as far as Austin, Midland, Houston and San Marcos. Parents from nearby churches attended as well. 

The event kicked off on Friday evening with vespers and continued Sabbath morning with Sabbath School and a worship service led entirely by young adults. After an abundant haystack lunch, the youth participated in outreach activities, including feeding the homeless, passing out literature and prayer with neighbors. A testimony session also took place. 

Later, the Lubbock church’s Filipino community prepared a delicious dinner, while the young adults socialized and played games. Sabbath evening included additional testimonies, an ACF presentation and vespers. 

The weekend concluded on Sunday morning with a gathering, devotional, recreation and a lunch that took place at the Urbanovsky City Park on the Campus of Texas Tech University. The event was entirely planned and executed by the young adults from the different churches. Messages on discipleship were presented by Greg Santos, Luke Hamel and Tendaishe Nembaware (young adults themselves), interspersed with soulful musical selections.
