Performers have been visiting 48 schools across the region; holding RE lesions and assemblies, and inviting students to attend evangelistic events at larger venues.
The Higher Tour: Yorkshire was arranged by The Message Trust, which has organised similar initiatives in Manchester, south Wales and the Midlands.
Chief Executive Officer Andy Hawthorne told Premier: “We’ve seen 1,300 young people who made a commitment to Christ.
“They went into a response room, they were given a bible, they prayed with a response team member, they were encouraged to go to local church fellow-up groups…
“We’re hoping, praying and believing that the 1,300 can become many more.”
The charity estimates 95 per cent of the youngsters they come into contact with at schools have “no connection” to a church.
Mr Hawthorne continued: “About an hour ago, I got an email about one of these kids who gave their lives to Christ.

“A youth leader said they’re so excited; [the young person] brought a bunch of mates along to the youth group.
“They’re all attending the youth group and they’re all attending the follow-up group… We long to see multiplication.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
