The Friday night youth concert was a “Sally Ann hoedown like it's never happened in the history of our church,” said singer Tim Neufeld.

Following the Welcome Meeting, Tim Neufeld, accompanied by the Hallelujah Glory Boys, put on a concert for youth from the Canada and Bermuda Territory complete with fiddles and folk songs. The bearded band of four had hands clapping and toes tapping under the glow of the stage lights where youth gathered in praise and worship.
“The Salvation Army is always finding new ways to bridge the gap between the young and the old,” says Krystal Tennessee, who attended the concert. “It is so great to see officers in there with the youth, jumping around for Jesus. It's really encouraging.”
Not only did officers take part in the fun, but General André Cox, Commissioner Silvia Cox, World President of Women's Ministries, and Commissioner Brian Peddle, territorial commander, also enjoyed the "mosh pit."
In his address, General Cox urged everyone to listen to God's direction for their lives. “As I look around the room, I see the potential not only to change Canada, but to change the world,” the General said.
Along with the General's words, a Partners in Mission video presentation challenged the youth to speak out to their generation and stand against injustice.
“It's nice to see everyone's individual style of worship and how it all funnels toward one purpose,” says Mitchell Cassie, an aspiring officer from the Maritime Division. “It's amazing to see people on fire for God.”
