One of the largest youth conferences in the country begins in Kelowna today.
Two thousand young people from across Western Canada are here for a three-day Rush youth conference. Events include assembling downtown to show the love to homeless people with live concerts and a barbecue, and cleaning up the area.
Two hundreds kids plan to join with World Vision, International Justice Mission and Hope for the Nations to raise money to rehabilitate child soldiers in Uganda.
Most activities take place at the school gym in Kelowna Secondary School. Among the entertainers are Starfield, this year's Canadian Christian band of the year, and David Crowder, an award-winning songwriter.
Speakers include speakers Tony Campolo, spiritual adviser to Bill Clinton, and Bob Lenz who speaks to nearly half a million young people a year.
