Session directing couple


We are Boyd and Annabelle and this is our first time as FSY session directors. We are both nervous and excited about what lies ahead.

We are really looking forward to getting to know each of you in a way that helps us all “Come unto Christ”

We have been asked to prepare ourselves from now to be the best we can be and we would like to invite you to do the same. Ask yourself what you can do now to make sure you have the best possible experience come FSY in August.

There are not many guarantees in life but we promise you that if you come prepared with an open heart and mind you will leave FSY with renewed faith, new friends, spiritual memories, a strengthened testimony and a sure knowledge that “You can do all things through Christ”.

Sign up now and be part of this amazing experience!
