The new Chatterbox video

The Fun-size Mission Academy is now live!

The Fun-size Mission Academy has just been launched at Spring Harvest to over 1000 young people. Inspired by the new Chatterbox format, they have created word and action mission plans to be delivered all across the UK. Spring Harvest agreed to be the catalyst for Fun-size Mission Academies – releasing the concept to young people gathered from throughout the country. Now we aim to mobilise 100,000 young people to share their faith as part of a movement to bring a HOPE Revolution to the UK.
"The Fun-size session at Minehead was just one of the best I’ve ever been to at Spring Harvest and I’ve been coming on and off for 32 years... Practical ideas for young people to take home and maybe action in church/school/ community. BRILLIANT. I LOVED IT"

Fun size mission academy
The Fun-size Academy builds on all that has been achieved through the 32 Mission Academies run throughout the UK. Fun-size Academies maintain the mission values and process, yet strip it back to its simplest form. It is just sooooo SIMPLE!

The four short, challenging sessions each ask a question:
  1. Who – do we want to reach? 
  2. What – are we going to do?
  3. How – do we want to do it?
  4. So – what have we learned?? 

That’s it. It’s a no brainer for any Christian young person and for any youth leaders wanting to see their young people sharing their faith. It puts young people in the driving seat of mission so that sharing their faith in words and actions will come naturally every day and in every context.? 
With HOPE Revolution’s Chatterbox, the Fun-size Mission Academy becomes a one-page resource that can be completed by a small group of young people in just four short sessions. Order FREE copies of the Chatterbox here stating how many you’d like and where we should send them. A PDF is also available to download on the HOPE Revolution website.

HOPE Revolution is the youth arm of HOPE. It's about young people stepping out of their comfort zones, being different and sharing Jesus. HOPE exists to equip and support the local church to speak and live its mission, effectively using words and action. The dream is to see long lasting spiritual change in the lives of individuals and to see whole communities transformed.
