What is Teen Talent all about?

Every two years the Church of God has a Teen Talent festival -- at the state level, and at the international level. Most recently, we participated at the state level in 2017 (see below).

There are many categories to choose from, and you can enter more than one: Art, Bible, Creative Writing, Drama, Music, and Multi-media. The purpose of Teen Talent is to help students Discover, Develop and Dedicate skills and talents unto the Lord.

Here's an overview of the opportunity students have.
