Festivals are events within the community that are designed to model the Kingdom of God. These festivals highlight children, but also build a spirit of community as people are drawn in to what is called an "Open Crowd". An "Open Crowd" creates an environment where everyone feels the warmth, love, acceptance, joy and life of the Kingdom of God. Areas you currently focus on such as community health, medical clinics, etc. can be an added element to any festival. Festivals can be planned to coincide with the Opening Ceremony or a particular popular sporting event. By using a big screen and projector, the entire community can come together and celebrate the Olympics. After the Games, Christians will be able to utilize these skills to implement future festivals during various holidays, such as Easter and Christmas, as well as other major sporting events.
