Youth revivals are open, evangelical meetings sponsored by a Christian church or organization that are designed to attract young people to the church. Many youth revivals include a series of meetings over a weekend and involve free youth-centered entertainment.
Youth revivals start with the active youth membership of an organization. The members of the youth ministry invite friends and advertise in the community. Teens may hand out pamphlets in public places or go door- to-door inviting people to the revival. The actual event typically includes adult and teen speakers, testimonies, Christian musicians, Christian comedians and an open invitation to the stage area for those who are interested in becoming Christians or receiving more information.
