Be a Prayer Partner for Elation!

Our Elation youth drama choir is once again preparing to head out to spread the Good News of the Gospel through performances of "Godspell"! Let's send our prayers with them in a new way this year.

Everyone is invited to "adopt" a youth as your prayer partner. You will covenant to pray for them each day as they travel. In addition you may write them a note of good wishes before they leave and/or a note of gratitude for their good work when they return. If you are able to be present for the homecoming event that's an added plus!

To participate simply send an email to st_stephen1@juno.com and you will be sent the name of one or two youths or a counselor (depending on the response – we want each youth and counselor to have a prayer partner) and we will send you a name – if we can get a picture we will send you that too.

Knowing that someone is holding you in prayer can be a very meaningful thing, especially for a young person. Let's all join in this opportunity to share God's love.


ELATION! is composed of 34 youths ranging in age from 12 to 18. The group was formed in August 1999 and has shared “GODSPELL” with more than 150 congregations in 32 states and Canada during the past 15 years.

All cast members have both singing, dancing and speaking roles to help tell the parables from the Gospel of Matthew in “GODSPELL.” The musical drama of the life of Christ is understood by the youths to be their means of conveying the message of Jesus Christ.

As a result of the young people's sincerity, "GODSPELL” becomes a significant worship event!

  1. We thoroughly enjoyed having the Elation Group at our church doing Godspell. Those who housed them, had a wonderful time learning about life on the road, how they got started with Elation and sharing about our area of southwest Florida.
