The Youth Spiritual Competitions (YSC) started in the year 2001 with the start of the new millennium as a way of encouraging our youth to grow in their faith. The competition is used as a fun way of promoting deeper study and understanding in selected areas: Hymns, Bible Study, and Church Studies… a Spiritual Triathlon of sorts.
Through God’s enormous help and the prayers of our blessed shepherd H.G. Bishop Serapion, the previous years of the YSC have been a great success. The competition is a one day event where teams from all over the diocese meet at one of the churches and enjoy a wonderful day of prayer, food and friendly competition.
The first competition took place at the, then new, Coptic Orthodox Christian Center (C.O.C.C.) with subsequent competitions taking place at different regions in the Diocese (North, East, West, and South). Thank God, more teams and more churches have participated in the competition with every passing year. The initial competition included only two levels, high school and college. However, through God’s provision and care, another level, junior high, was added in 2004. Thank God, this expansion has allowed more people to benefit from preparing and participating in the competition.
