VICKSBURG, Miss.I Can Fly Ministries is celebrating 15 years with a conference June 21-22 concluding with a performance at 7 pm at the Ardis T. Williams Sr. Auditorium on Saturday.

Located in downtown Vicksburg, Mississippi, the group aims to connect with local residents and promote unity and enhance spiritual moral growth in our youth through art.

This year’s conference will showcase a choreography camp of the group’s greatest hits over their 15 years. Youth, teens, and adults from near and far will showcase dance, mime, Hip Hop, flags, and technique and prophetic training.

Over the years, I Can Fly Ministries has mentored approximately 1500 youth and 750 adults in dance, mime, and flag. The group started in 2007 with a focus on mentoring and included the arts in 2009.

“I started in the Organization at the age of 13 learning different aspects of leadership, mentorship, movement, speech, and etc. Now I’m 22 years of age pouring back into the community as an Arts Leader!” said Shylo Brown, an Arts leader for the ministry.

Brown said that the organization helped him conquer his depression, anxiety and anxiousness. He also attributes the group in helping him find his identity.

“Before I joined, I always went to the Mega Conferences as a great learning experience for me. Over the years I was molded into the leader I am today! I am now an arts Leader in the organization! I’m also a Poet, Mime, Sound Producer, Teacher, and soon to be podcaster,” reflected Brown, “So, I Thank God for the opportunities he has blessed me with! And will always give back to the community that sowed and poured into me!”

Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord

Kiara Jones, another Arts leader for the group started attending the events in 2010. Although dance had always been a priority in her life, the ministry introduced her to visual interpretation and expression of biblical stories through mime.

“Over the years, I’ve been able to create and understand my own walk with God as an artist, leader, and friend to many in my community,” exclaimed Jones, “Excelling not only in church, but also in performing arts programs, I developed a personal appreciation for design, choreography, and theatre in musicals and marching band. I Can Fly Ministries gave me a purpose outside of school and now, as an adult encourages me to support local projects and pour back into the youth as my mentors have done for me.”

On June 21st the group is hosting a 70s Theme skate night at Big Wheelie skating rink. Entry is included in registration with the conference.

The Saturday performance at the City Auditorium is free and open to the public.
