If you are a young adult from 18-25, we know that life after high school is a whole new journey for you. You have to deal with getting older, with more responsibility, facing many changes, and making the biggest decisions of your life(i.e. who/when are you going to marry, what career do I want to do, what's God's will for my life?) We want to provide an opportunity for you to explore God's truth about life and get connected to other people in your stage of life.

“I humbled my soul with fasting.” Psalm 35:13 What is Christian fasting? The Bible speaks of fasting as abstaining from food for a time in order to grow spiritually, glorify God, enhance our spirit, receive healing, and grow our prayer life. Fasting is not a way to get God to do what we want; fasting changes us, not God. It is more about denying our natural appetites and raising our spiritual appetites. Fasting should also be confidential and not something you tell others you are doing (see Matthew 6:16-18).
TYPES OF FASTING Fasting can take many forms. For instance, you could fast from things that are a sacrifice for you like internet surfing, computer games, shopping, media, TV, radio, music, Twitter, texting, etc. Be creative, design your own type of fast. Ask God what kind of fast he would have you do. Fasting from food is not to be taken lightly. If you are new to fasting food please consult your doctor.
FOOD FASTING OPTIONS You may fast from all or selected meals in a day or from "between meal" snacks or after meal deserts. You may also fast from particular foods or drinks like meat, dairy, coffee, tea, alcohol, pop, chocolate, etc.. You may decide to fast from solids and only take in liquids such as juices, soups, smoothies. A 'Daniel' fast - as found in the book of Daniel 10:3 - where he "ate no choice food, no meat or wine touched my lips." Fast from delicacies, stick to fresh fruit and vegetables. The 5 Food Fast - (just eating nuts, fruit, vegetables, yogurt, red meat).
FASTING TIPS Plan your fast. Pray and ask God for protection, strength, and wisdom during your fast. Look ahead because you may have to rearrange your schedule or change your grocery list. Start small. As with anything, fasting requires practice to become better at it. Set yourself a challenging, but realistic goal. Begin and end well. When fasting from food, the meals before and after the fasting period should be smaller and lighter than usual. End your fast gradually. Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
REDEEM THE TIME Where possible, the time that is not spent on eating (or whatever else you choose to fast from) is spent on your relationship with God, prayer, reading the Bible and seeking the Lord.
WARNINGS Do not fast from water. Also, fasting from food is unwise if you are diabetic, hypoglycemic, prone to migraines, pregnant, taking medication, or recovering from sickness. Do not fast from red meat if you are inclined to anemia. If you have any doubts/questions, please talk to a health care professional. Fasting is entirely voluntary. WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND CONSULTING YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL FOR ADVICE BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY FOOD FAST.
