This year we have a special gift available for you; if you bring 10% or more of your church’s Sunday morning attendance, we will give you a ‘WKND Away’  at TimeOut in Squamish, BC, April 6-8, 2019. TimeOut is a retreat geared especially for Next Gen pastors/leaders and their spouses to relax, find renewal, and build deep, meaningful relationships. For more details, check out www.nextgenbc.ca. If you qualify for a ‘WKND Away’, Historymaker will cover your hotel, TimeOut registration, a loaded Visa card for meals, and a ‘WKND Away’ gift basket filled with over $100.00 worth of goodies for you.

OUR VISION

Our mission is to make HistoryMaker more than a conference. That it would be a weekend to give teens and leaders an opportunity to have a life-altering encounter with the living God so that they can be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to reach the 1.2 million people who are considered the next generation in BC and the Yukon.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • The Holy Scriptures to be the divinely in-breathed, infallible, inherent, and authoritative Word of God.

  • That there is one God, eternally existent in the Persons of the Holy Trinity.

  • In the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, His deity, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all-sufficiency of His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father’s right hand and His personal coming again at His second advent.

  • That justification is a judicial act of God on the believer’s behalf solely on the merits of Christ, and that regeneration by the power of the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

  • In Christ’s Lordship of the Church, the observance of the ordinances of the Christian baptism by immersion for believers and the Lord’s supper.

  • In the eternal blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the eternal doom of the unregenerate in the lake of fire.

WHAT WE VALUE

  • We value community, promoting and encouraging the greater family in BC and the Yukon

  • We value encounter, promoting an atmosphere where people encounter the life giving and changing presence of God.

  • We value excellence, establishing an event known for doing things well

  • We value unity, promoting an atmosphere of acceptance and care for those who attend.

  • We value transformation, it is our deep hope that those who come will leave different, impacted in a way that sees them live bravely for the Kingdom of God

Fundraising

A FEW SUGGESTIONS

  • When promoting fundraisers share the vision and purpose behind HistoryMaker.
  • Once people grasp the vision, they will see the importance of helping your group.
  • You can share the vision by using the promo video, brochures, web page, and testimonies from previous years.
  • Promote your fundraisers well in advance not only to ensure maximum impact, but also to prepare the people and the youth group.
  • It is important to let the youth feel like they own these projects.

SOME EFFECTIVE FUNDRAISERS

  1. Cafe – After youth night activities or Bible Study sell chips, pop, wings, and other good stuff.
  2. Live or Silent Auctions – Auctions can be live or silent, and both can be successful, but live auctions add more actions.
    The possibilities are endless: you can auction off donated items, pies, and other desserts. Be creative.
  3. Spaghetti/Pasta Fest - This is a low cost fundraiser that is sure to be lots of fun for those attending and participating.
    Sell tickets for an evening of pasta and fun. Have your youth wait on tables and provide the entertainment.

In fundraising remember to be creative. There are two ways to fundraise. One is to provide a service and the other is to ask for donations. The more creative you are the more people will rally around you. Get the youth to be involved. If you do all the work the youth will continue to let you do all the work. A little hard work (elbow grease) helps them respect what it took to make the trip take place.

FUNDRAISERS WITH A SERVICE FOCUS:

Candy Grams to students, Sunday sundaes, barbeque at a grocery store, garage sales, pink flamingo insurance, birthday surprise, hair cuts, babysitting, frozen pizzas, entertainment books, collect outdated phone books for the phone company, clean highway ditches for the Government.

FUNDRAISERS WITH A DONATION FOCUS:

Offerings, bottle drives, items for garage sales, ticket entrance to a church function (like play or musical), shaving or perm youth pastor’s head, support letter.
