Montrose Audience of One
Montrose Ao1 is led by Geoff and Megan Ila. They, along with their staff, meet with children and teenagers from the ages of 8-18.
Ao1 (Audience of One) is a youth discipleship program incorporating discipleship and performing arts. Our goal is to give young people an atmosphere where they are challenged to grow in their relationship with the Lord. This includes teaching on the character of God, performing arts, and small group time for application, reflection and prayer. The young people minister the gospel through Contemporary Christian music, sign language, creative movement and testimonies of what the Lord has done in their lives. We minister in schools, churches, prisons, malls, street corners, parks, hospitals and any place where people gather.
We have chosen the name “Audience of One” because our primary objective is to bless God’s heart. Our worship, our dance, our devotion is to be to Him, first and foremost. He is the audience we should seek to please.
We have two seasons for our Montrose Ao1 program. The fall season and the spring season each go for 12 weeks. The fall season begins in September and ends with a community outreach in the beginning of December, and the spring season begins in February and ends with a community outreach in May. Our usual Ao1 season consists of team members meeting once a week for two hours. The students arrive after school; they have a snack, and then settle in for a short, Biblically-based teaching. The teaching is followed by small group time and prayer time. The students then are given time to learn a dance that will be incorporated into the program that will be done in the community at the end of the season. All programs consist of worship, the dances or dramas that they have learned, and the testimonies of the team members as they share what they have learned and what God has done in their lives.
