Re: When was the first North American Youth Congre

I'm going to just further derail this thread and ask this: When men wearing skirts becomes the norm, and trust me that day is coming, will Apostolic women start wearing pants to keep a distinction between the sexes? Because from what I can tell, women wearing skirts is less about modesty/holiness than it is about femininity.

Re: When was the first North American Youth Congre

So your question really is:
"Do church standards change when the culture changes"?
Correct?

Re: When was the first North American Youth Congre

But the difference here is that the message does not change. Distinction and holiness are still preached.

Men wearing skirts will never become the norm. We can't stand to wax our legs.

Neither can women.

I'm just saying, at least hypothetically, wouldn't women start wearing pants?

Re: When was the first North American Youth Congre

Back to the OP question, I went for the first time in Kansas City in 1992.

The first North American Youth Congress was back in the late 70's. I believe the first one was in Memphis. I was there and remember bits and pieces but it was over 35 years ago so not a whole lot.

The main memory I have is of Mickey Mangun singing before Anthony preached and she sang the secular song (probably with a few words reworked) "Your Love is Lifting Me Higher". I think the young folks were getting a little too into it and at some point Anthony shut the song down. LOL. I could say more but it would give my identity away.

It was a great event for a UPC teenager who felt like the entire world was about to see not only the revelation of Jesus name but women everywhere would look at UPC women with no makeup, uncut hair, long blue jean skirts, white socks, and tennis shoes and say "I want what they have!!!!".

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."
