Youth Explosion 2022

Returning to Malone on November 11 and 12, 2022

Youth Explosion, a ministry conference for middle school and high school students, will include performances by musical artists, speakers, group activities, and worship services.

“This is our second year in person at Malone,” said Jim Davis, associate pastor at Willoughby Hills Friends Church and long-time director of Youth Explosion. “We had more than 600 young people on the campus last November and are hoping we attract more than 900 this year.”

Performers include:

1. Christian rap artist Trip Lee.

2. Michael Franzese, former Mafia boss who turned to Jesus and now speaks to audiences around the country about his faith.

3. Tyron Whittaker, youth pastor for the Hillsong Church in South Africa.

4. Markus McFolling, former professional football player who lost his career due to injury and once slipped into a dark path of drug addiction. He now travels the country talking about his story of overcoming adversity and his commitment to God’s plan for his life.

5. The Alans, a married magic and mentalism performing duo.

6. The Young Escape, a southern California indie-pop band.
