Youth Evangelism Conference

Saturday 12th May 2018 from 10am to 4.30pm at Warrington Salvation Army


In 2018, TheYECUK looks to stir the nation to action.

Following the theme #gospeloffensive, the conference will address the ways in which the truth about Jesus presents an affront to our culture, and will call us to speak it anyway.

Jesus said that the kingdom of God is forcefully advancing. Could it be time for a new boldness in youth ministry that, by the Spirit of God actively sets out to captivate the hearts of a generation? Rather than being squeezed into a worldly mould, a mission movement that is shaped by the truth and brings transformation? (Romans 12:2)

95% of children and young people are not in church so we’ve got to share the good news with them where they are!
What does that mean for children’s and youth work? How do we connect with children in our communities? Join us on The 95 Tour as we explore these important questions. Be encouraged, inspired and equipped to reach out to children and young people.
