Level Up

THE YOUTH EVANGELISM CONFERENCE 25 February 2017 #notashamed

COMMISSIONED | CALLED COMPELLED | CONVICTED “I was blown away by the programme, the resources and the stories of changed lives!” (theYECuk delegate, 2016)



UP I’m so excited to be introducing ‘Level Up’, a brand new youth-focused section to the next issue of Keep The Faith.


hile the content will be aimed at young people, it’s important for you to know that it’s also for anyone with a youthful heart. So, for those of you who don’t yet consider yourselves ‘old’, like a good PG movie, there will always be something in it for you. So, what am I going to be writing about? ‘Level Up’ is all about unleashing your potential as a young person. Together we’ll explore your talents, gifts and passions to help you find your purpose. I’ll show you how to finesse every fear in your life, so that you can chase after those dreams you haven’t dared to believe could come true. And, with the help of some of my friends, we’re going to find ways for you to make a positive impact in the world. Knowing you have a purpose shapes your choices, friendships and the overall direction of your life. By learning the truth about fear, you’ll discover how to break the hold it may already have over your life, and ensure that it never dictates your decisions but, instead, informs them. If you’re willing to join me on this journey, I promise that not only will you be a better version of yourself, you will also be happier and, most importantly, you will have a clear understanding of who you are. I can’t wait to get started with you. Look out for ‘Level Up’ in the next edition of Keep the Faith. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from Find us on Twitter: @KeepTheFaithmag

he goal of The Youth Evangelism Conference (theYECuk) is to see the Church respond to the key opportunity of our times - to present the life-changing revelation of God’s good news to young people. The organisers say “It’s time to declare that we are #notashamed of the power of God to save everyone who believes.” The YECuk is a new partnership between YFC, Alpha, HOPE, Scripture Union, Urban Saints and the Church of England, seeking to inspire leaders to greater confidence in reaching young people. On 25th February 2017, the YECuk #notashamed takes place at the brand new C3 Centre (Coldhams Lane, Cambridge, CB1 3HR), and looks to build on the success of the inaugural event. The 2017 Conference brings together creative thinkers, experienced leaders, including Andy Hawthorne (The Message) and J. John (Philo Trust); cultural analysts and passionate evangelists; with worship led by Soul Survivor’s Joe Bright. The programme promises to connect attendees with stories from across the UK, where practitioners are experiencing breakthrough in the lives of local teenagers. In addition, by presenting the latest research and highlighting the best resources for evangelism, the day aims to equip and empower delegates for action. Schools worker, Wayne Dixon, was “blown away by the programme, the resources, the stories of changed lives and the opportunity to listen and learn from others in networking” at the YECuk in 2016. His advice for youth workers, schools workers or Christian young people is clear: “Come to the YECuk 2017 and be part of an emerging generation of youth workers and young people who are inspired and equipped to be and speak Good News!” Emerging leaders (aged 21 and under) are offered a huge discount, as the conference prioritises equipping young people to reach their own generation. Savings are also available for groups. Places are limited, so advance booking is essential. The conference is from 10am to 4pm.
