A GROUP of youth organised a Sports Fest at Gospel High School grounds last week to preach the gospel of God.

The CityWide Youth Network hosted a three-day sports program which ended on Saturday.

Citywide Youth Network chairperson Tomasi Tiko said they were an inter-denominational network of churches, within the greater Suva area.

He said the network "recognises the efforts of the different Christian youth groups and seeks to combine these efforts, adding the greater value of unity to achieve a common purpose which is to express the love of God to the world by coming together as a united body, synergising all our gifts, talents and resources in reaching the lost and broken in our generation".

The network volunteers used the program designed to connect youths with the gospel of Jesus Christ using sports, competition and the Bible.

Participants were engaged in sports activities such as basketball, volleyball, netball, baseball, soccer and touch rugby while being guided by trainers with value based coaching.

The Sports Fest ended with a praise party at the school grounds.
