WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - A Christian school assembly program that motivates young people to make smart choices reached out to kids in Worth County Wednesday night.
Using skits and music, "Future Now" is motivating young people to make good choices in life.
"To bring a vision of purpose, destiny, vision, goal setting," said Chris Musgrove, Future Now Director. "To ask students where you're going and how you're going to get there."
16-year-old Briana Johnson is one of hundreds of people to attend the evangelistic outreach Wednesday night that brought 15 churches together in the Worth County High School gym.
"They gave their own personal stories and honestly a couple of them were very touching," said Briana Johnson.
"These kids just relate with them," said Jimmy Cargle, Pastor of Northside Baptist Church.
They showed testimonial videos of how relying on your faith can you get through tough times and Johnson says Future Now has left a lasting impact on her life.
"Because I have grown up in a home to where my dad drank a lot and he was always passed out in the bathroom and I feel like I gained almost a friend through that," said Johnson.
"Drugs, sex, alcohol, premarital, sex, gangs, violence, failing grades and bullying are really symptoms of a bigger problem," said Musgrove. "You don't have a plan."
Pastor Jimmy Cargle says "Future Now" results in improvements for students both inside and outside the classroom.
"The graduation rate of Worth County High School will be higher as a result of this event tonight," said Cargle. "I promise you."
"Somebody's that got a plan won't let anybody sidetrack them," said Musgrove.
Briana Johnson hopes others at the event will also stay on the right path.
"If it's just me, imagine what he could do with hundreds of people that show up to this wonderful event," said Johnson.
"Future Now" will also host a huddle with various clubs Thursday morning at Worth County High School.
