REUNION RECORDS’ band CASTING CROWNS reached out to local youth leaders on a recent trip to KENYA and SOUTH AFRICA, introducing the youth leaders to the band’s GLOBAL YOUTH MINISTRY resource, which offers access to free tools for leadership training. The group met with 175 youth workers in CAPE TOWN representing 80 churches, 125 leaders in KISUMU, KENYA, and 100 workers in NAIROBI.
In KENYA, CASTING CROWNS also visited an area development project through its partnership with WORLD VISION. The band spent time at a local primary school visiting many of the organization’s sponsor children.
