With all of the unfulfilling opportunities in the world it is more important than ever that we provide positive, God-focused choices for our youth that are fun and appeal to their specific individual and collective sense of taste. Young believers face scorn, degradation, and humiliation every day from the secular world within which they live. These young people need opportunities to live their faith without fear and trepidation. They need to know that following Jesus Christ is good, and fun, and certainly nothing to be ashamed of, despite what they hear in the secular media and the hallways of their schools.
