AFTERSHOCK! A Student, Youth, and At-Risk Community Outreach with Nicky Cruz - Coming to North Alabama!

School Assemblies • Teen Challenge Dinner and Banquet • ROCK the COURT! • AFTERSHOCK at the Epicenter

The AFTERSHOCK 2009 Weekend is an incredible opportunity for our community with a unique focus on area schools, students, and particularly at-risk youth. Kenny Cole is a local attorney who played College Football, works closely with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and had personally “adopted” Chapman Middle School. He had shared recently the testimony of Nicky Cruz ( - note that a book and two movies have been written about his life, including one being released later this year - Run Baby Run). Afterward Coach Shelby asked if Nicky Cruz could possibly come to Chapman and share his story, and as Kenny explored the possibility it soon became evident God’s hand was involved in a very special way ...

Please note what is emerging and share with youth pastors, student ministries, and especially any who may know or work with at-risk youth!

Until April 2008 she was the Political Director of various pro-Israel efforts at the European Parliament in Brussels. She has also served as a Cultural Attache at the Embassy of Finland in Israel.

Yad Vashem
The International Holocuast Memorial in Jerusalem

"And to them will I give in my house and within my walls
a memorial and a name (a "yad vashem") ...
that shall not be cut off." (Isaiah 65:5)

As the Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust, Yad Vashem safeguards the memory of the past and imparts its meaning for future generations. Established in 1953, as the world center for documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is today a dynamic and vital place of intergenerational and international encounter.

For over half a century, Yad Vashem has been committed to four pillars of remembrance: Commemoration, Documentation, Research, Education
