Manassas church to host annual Daniel Bragg youth debate

The Youth Ministry of First Baptist Church in Manassas is hosting a debate preparatory workshop on Sunday, Jan. 26,  at 2:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 9258 Center Street in Manassas. The actual 2020 Daniel Bragg Youth Great Debate will be held on Sunday, March 22, at 2:30 p.m., also at First Baptist Church.

This is a free program, in which participants learn valuable communication and research skills. They also learn how to formulate and present opposing points of view and are mentored by debate professionals, teachers and community leaders. 

The Daniel Bragg Youth Great Debate was established in 2016, by Jonathan and Valerie Oliver. The Olivers presented the idea to their pastor and associate ministers of First Baptist Church (FBC). Since its inception, FBC continues to work along with the Oliver Family to provide a positive platform and learning opportunities for middle and high school students in Prince William County, Manassas City and Manassas Park to debate effectively on important issues.

Daniel Bragg, a World War II veteran, inspired a legacy of community activism and advocacy. He served his country valiantly overseas and at home, and he believed in hard work and fighting for what you believe in. He was also passionate about building up and inspiring youth and was a mentor who taught students valuable life lessons.

Through the Youth Great Debate Program, the First Baptist Church Youth Ministry continues Bragg’s legacy of teaching youth.

According to past participant Isaiah Mason, “Being a part of the debate has taught me so much. The most important thing I have learned is confidence.”
