Strong Youth, Strong Music
This program is an exciting and energetic concert program of music and lights, with the messages of the songs and stories being drawn directly from the "For the Strength of Youth" pamphlet. Hear how strong music, with a strong message can help LDS youth hold to strong standards!
Typically for a gathering of LDS youth in a church cultural hall, Mark brings a sound system and sings his original songs with pre-recorded backing tracks. Even though this gives the experience an exciting "rock concert" feeling, it still carries the powerful messages of the songs. The lyrics are shared with each person in the audience, and each one gets an invitation to download complete songs for free. Typically, this kind of performance is done without cost to the youth group.
As a young person in the church, this is a critical time of discovery and of learning. This is where the seeds of testimony are sown, and where the belief grows stronger and stronger. Mark has written a number of songs that relate to getting, strengthening, and bearing your testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This program is more calm and reserved. Mark brings his acoustic guitar, and, if necessary, a sound system, and sings the songs and tells the stories that bear his testimony. This experience is more appropriate for smaller groups, and settings of a more spiritual nature.
How to schedule a Fireside or other event.
First, download the summaries and lyrics (in MSWord and pdf formats), and look them over. Present them to your group or priesthood leaders for approval. Though there's nothing in them that is contrary to the teachings of the church, it's always good to check.
Then, contact us using the form below. We'll get back with you and schedule the date and time of your youth conference, fireside, or activity.
Come back often to hear about new songs and shows. Mark also has other sites and blogs, including Mark's Black Pot and his MoBoy blog.
