The Youth Evangelism Conference 2016

Working on helping the young people you work with grow as authentic disciples? Looking for the transformation of your local community? Trying to reimagine what church could look like if it effectively engaged with Young People? Why not add the 2016 Youth Evangelism Conference into your thinking space.

Youth Evangelism Conference

From the Organisers – “These are challenging times in youth ministry with fewer and fewer opportunities for youth leaders to come together for input and inspiration throughout 2016. Why not make the Youth Evangelism Conference your place for training in 2016? With a ridiculous first year price of just £20 per person (and only £10pp for all HOPE Revolution advocates), this is a no brainer for anyone passionate to see young people come to faith. Please note, this price is only available for bookings made before Christmas. Please visit the YEC website for more information and to make your booking.”

“There is an urgency for effective youth ministry and evangelism. This conference will equip, inspire, and encourage for a ‘time such as this’. If you have been called to youth ministry and evangelism do not miss this unique conference – there will be divine synergy that will make a difference.”

J.John – Evangelist

Meet Beth – The Christian Aid Collective Intern for Hampshire


My name’s Beth and I’m the new Christian Aid Collective Intern for Hampshire. For the next 10 months, my role is to work alongside local church youth groups to look into issues of poverty and justice.

Beth CAII’ll be looking to run workshops, lead group sessions, give presentations or help out in any other relevant way!

I’m also going to be visiting some of Christian Aid’s partner organisations in Bangladesh in late October and early November, and I’d love to be able to share some of my stories and experiences from that trip with youth groups.

If you’d like to meet up for a coffee or a chat to discuss things, or have anything you’d like to invite me to, just get in touch! There’s also a lot more on our website ( )

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Beth John

Quality Youth Ministry Training… watch online with a cuppa (YFC Training Wall)

Finding space, opportunity and input for training can be a challenge.

Whether it’s finding space in the dairy or the budget for attending a training event, getting your team together for training, or just finding a good training resource, it’s not always easy.

Well, YFC are here for you. The YFC resource team have just launched an online library of training videos… all for free.

YFC Rescources

Why not:

  • Watch one over a coffee break?
  • Make a slot in a youth team meeting to watch and discuss one with your team?
  • Send the link round to your team to watch with a cup of tea and a biscuit, and then chat about it as you set up for your next event?
  • Ask for a slot in a staff meeting to watch a relevant one with the clergy and your staff team to help them understand what you do a bit better?

All the videos can be found here.

Let us know how you use them, which were most helpful and which ones you’d like to see more training around!
