The Multicultural Youth Leadership Event is a pre-event to the Gathering. It empowers young people of color and those whose primary language is other than English to claim their story as a part of God's story. MYLE 2018 will be held June 24–27, 2018 at the University of Houston.
MYLE’s core values include:
The theme for MYLE 2018 is “ONE” based in the scripture of Ephesians 2:14-19,
“For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.15 He has abolished the law with its commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new humanity in place of the two, thus making peace,16 and might reconcile both groups to God in one body through the cross, thus putting to death that hostility through it]17 So he came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near;18 for through him both of us have access in one Spirit to the Father.19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God”
In God’s eternal plan and wisdom there is a way to remove these barriers. This new humanity would no longer be many, but ONE believer in Christ. In other words, this was God’s plan for the unity of many into ONE new people in Christ.
Each day of MYLE program pieces will focus around a sub-theme:
One body, many parts (1Corinthians 12:14-26)
One mission, many gifts (1Corinthians 12: 4-11)
One household, many rooms (John 14:2)
ONE in CHRIST (Ephesians 2:14-19)
As each individual, congregation, ethnic community and language gathers at MYLE, we will celebrate our uniqueness, dive into scripture, serve in the Houston community, learn from teachers and elders, spread joy in fellowship and most importantly worship the Lord who makes us ONE!
