It's simple; don't promise marriage just to get a date.
Just one week after Valentine’s Day, Texas Panhandle students will have the opportunity to participate in an event where they can seriously consider a lifestyle of abstaining from sex until marriage.
But this event will be far from a traditional Kumbaya circle, or the stern wagging of a finger.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Citychurch in Amarillo, MORE Church in Amarillo and First Presbyterian Church in Amarillo have partnered together to bring SRT to the Texas Panhandle. It’s young, relatable adults” talking about Silver Ring Thing’s approach to an “awkward” topic, said Jake Schroeder, the male associate youth director for First Presbyterian.
With loud music, break dancers, special effects and comedians the SRT event is directed at teens in a concert-style, modern conversation about what some of the dangers are of sex outside of a marriage covenant.
“Maybe I’m a little biased because I was a part of it, but it changed my life.” Now 26, Schroeder traveled as a National Tour Team Member with SRT between 20, speaking as one of the organization’s “young, relatable adults.” Throughout two tours, he spoke to thousands of teenagers across the country.
Williams, a 16-year-old at Dumas High School, said she did her research before agreeing to attend Wednesday night’s SRT event at the Amarillo Civic Center Complex.
According to the organization, “SRT defies the meet-up, hook-up, break-up mindset of today and inspires students to a pure life centered in Jesus Christ.” The young-adult speakers travel with SRT and each have their own testimony of faith and how it has affected their sex life.
“I would say it’s the most relevant event to talk about sex that I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Schroeder.

SRT sends out yearly tours across the United States to hold high-energy events with special effects, peer-level speakers and personal testimonies that challenge students to defy the “meet-up, hook-up, break-up” culture and hold high standards based on a foundation of Jesus Christ.
