Youth Evangelism Weekender
This was one of the most encouraging events I have ever attended in 12 years of youth ministry! On Friday 30 November, more than 30 young people and leaders gathered to look together at what evangelism could look like amongst young people. The young people selected for the weekend were invited because of how they are currently sharing their faith with their friends. The weekend offered an opportunity to dream with like-minded young people as to how they could be more confident in sharing their faith. It was amazing to hear stories from all over the country of how these young people are sharing their faith effectively with friends, family and communities, often with little idea that what they are doing is anything special.

The weekend offered a great opportunity to spend time alongside the young people, hearing about some of the challenges that face them in this emerging culture. We were also delighted to have some of the young people agree to speak at the forth-coming Youth Evangelism Conference, telling their stories of sharing faith and challenging the wider church on how it reaches out to young people.

Amplify

Special-forces

Following on from the Youth Evangelism Weekender and in partnership with Advance 2020, we are delighted to be launching Amplify at Easter 2019.

Amplify will take a small, hand-picked group of young people through a year-long programme. These are young people who are actively living out what it looks like to share faith; confidently speaking with peers, inviting friends to church, setting up Christian unions and taking any opportunity to share Jesus. In our army of young evangelists, these are our SAS unit, the ‘Navy Seals’ of young evangelists. They are those who understand and practise peer to peer evangelism in a natural way. 

Amplify will be a nationally-run programme, investing in these young evangelists, helping them to develop greater confidence in sharing their faith, while amplifying their voices and offering accessible models of what it means to share faith in this modern youth culture.
Due to launch in April 2019, Amplify will journey with up to 100 young people aged 11-18, selected from churches and denominations right across the UK - no more than two young people from any one church.

If you have any young people who would fit the bill, please sign up here. Further information will be available in the New Year.
