Youth and Young Adults Vision and Strategy

Published: Friday, 23 January 2015

Where are we going with our ABC Youth and Young Adults ministries and how will we get there? There are some good foundations to build upon, but there is a need for seeing their Sundays connect to their Mondays. Through a strong discipleship and bible‐based program, with mentoring, 1­‐2­‐1 contact and peer accountability, we can do our part to aid this.

Following the success of the first forum on the Youth and Young Adults Strategy, a second one is scheduled for 11:30am on Sunday 1st February.
