About the Talent Festival

The Talent Festival program is more than a competitive activity to determine who rates first and second; it is a ministry of love and guidance to Church of God youth. Competition, coupled with love and guidance, is a strong force in challenging youth to reach their full potential and to express themselves constructively for the glory of God.

The Talent Festival program includes the following divisions: Art, Bible, Creative Writing, Drama, Music and Multi-Media. Youth with skills in these areas may use them for their personal enjoyment and as a Christian witness.
