Youth Handbell Festivals are a great addition to the year for our youth ringers. Youth look forward to this opportunity to travel, to make new friends, and to ring with a large group of their peers. These events help us to understand our ringing is part of our worldwide praise of our Creator and in addition to wonderful fellowship, gives us space to grow in our faith and musicianship at the same time. NC Baptists are known throughout the handbell community for providing the highest quality festivals over the last 30 years. This is a highly recommended experience for your youth bell ringers!” – Brian Childers

The Youth Bell Festival provided an excellent weekend experience of ringing, learning new music, and new techniques alongside other youth. Meeting other youth bell ringers was extremely valuable! We came away from the weekend a much better choir and playing with much more confidence. Having focused multi-hours of bell rehearsal helped our youth fall in love with bell ringing even more!” – Larry Abernathy
