The Egyptian Theatre in Boise was full to its 750 capacity with standing room only on Thursday, October 7, 2013.
There were lines over a block away in front of the Egyptian full of people attending the event.
Pastor Mark Francey of Generation Church holds services across the street from the Student Union Building at Boise State at the University Christian Church at 8 p.m. on Thursday nights. Francey started with 9 members in a basement to now over 500 members.
A lot of these members are from Boise State University.
Kaitlyn Gervis, a member of this church explained the benefits of this church and movement in her life.
“This music is appealing to a young generation and anyone. This is my fourth year and I would never want to miss out on this annual event. I was once a student at Boise State and I am thinking about going back to finish my degree to teach elementary school children,” Gervis said.
Gervis went on to express her feelings about her involvement in the church.
“The love I have felt by being around this church has motivated me to give back the love I receive to the children in the community,” Gervis said.
Ramus Amadi, James Meagher and Robert Ash , members of the Boise State football team, attended the event and gave up their seats.
There were over 100 volunteers there to help with this event that are between the ages of 18 and 22.
Francey discussed his goal for the event.
“This is a movement that is not about a religion, but a relationship with Jesus Christ,” Francey said.
He went on to discuss his beliefs on joining specific religions.
“I encourage everyone standing that got saved to go to whatever church that they chose to be able to experience and continue this growth that takes place after you get saved. Do not wait until you think you are good enough or after you do good things to be good enough Salvation is a free gift,” Francey said.
“God accepts you just the way you are. Trust Him to reveal that to you after you accept Him. He will speak to your heart and show you the way.”
