The 2012 Olympics offer a great opportunity for churches to connect with their communities. In conjunction with More than Gold and Share Jesus International, Fusion Open Crowd Community Festivals offer training and resources for building community through festivals that bring people together.
Teams are trained in practical skills like face-painting, leading games and activities, but also learn to be aware of social interactions and to support and encourage hospitality and generosity. Each festival can act as a catalyst for building a longer-lasting network of hope and goodwill, part of the long-term process of mission. Read more about the training available, the mission process and the difference that Open Crowd Community Festivals have made in their communities across the globe on the Fusion website at http://fusionyac.org/2012/.
Fusion is an international Christian Youth & Community movement made up of small groups of friends who love their communities and are committed to developing practical responses to the needs they face. Find out more at http://fusionyac.org/.
