About Illuminate

There is no better way to start the year than by joining us at North Canton Church of Christ for the Illuminate Youth Rally! 


Our desire is that this event will bring light into the dark places of our teenagers' lives and help them reflect the light of Christ.

This year, our theme is 'Prodigal.' We will examine what it means to be lost and we will also talk about coming back home to God.


The dates for Illuminate are January 17-19, 2020. The fun begins at 5 pm. Make plans to join us for #IYR2020!


Who Is Coming?

Leading worship for this year's youth rally will be Chris Lindsey.  Chris is head of the worship & creative arts ministry at Well House Church in Goodlettsville, TN. He's a graduate of Lipscomb University. Chris has lead worship at various events such as Impact, Revolution Youth Conference, and JumpStart Youth Rally. Our worship will consist of both acapella and instrumental worship to engage the heart of worship in each teenager. Chris will be bringing a team of people to assist him in leading worship. 


Our speaker will be Aaron Kirkpatrick from Adams Blvd. Church of Christ in Bartlesville, OK where he is the preaching minister. He graduated from Harding and previously was Youth and Family Minister at Chenal Valley Church in Little Rock, AR. Aaron has spoken at Lipscomb’s Impact. He spoke at IYR last year and the students really connected with his teachings, we're excited to hear from him again!

Our entertainer at the youth rally this year is Rick Smith Jr. He performs about 600 shows every year! Rick's passion for magic began when he was just 7 years old and he has been pursing this type of entertainment for 20 years. Rick is known for his world record  card throwing abilities.
