It is great to be able to announce a new project that we are involved in, which will be launching later this year.
Through a partnership between the Bible Society in Australia, YFC International and ourselves, a new app is being launched this year, where young people can go to ask questions about faith and life.
There will be a variety of ways that this will work within the app, but what is exciting for us, is that young people can ask questions in a safe environment and young leaders will respond to those questions.
So what part are we playing?
To start with, there will be 24 young leaders under the age of 30 from across the world, responding to the questions sent in. Our role is to mentor them to ensure they have the space and time to grow as leaders, but also to explore any issues that may come up through this process.
As soon as this app is officially launched, we will send out information for young people to engage with it, but it is exciting to know that all the appropriate safe-guarding will be in place and there will be space available for young people to work things out, ask those questions and have help to process them. For us, it will be great to support young leaders, help them grow and enable them to work through their own questions, as they in turn support and enable others do the same.
So, we ask for your prayers for the following, please:
1: An increase of young leaders to support and answer questions that the young people send in.
2: That young people will engage with this and ask the questions.
3: That we will be able to raise up other mentors to support the young leaders.
4: That extra support, particularly in terms of finance, comes our way to enable us to take on this project and mentor these young leaders appropriately.
Monday 29 April, 2013 sees the release of the vision and values for how the Church across Harrogate can better work with, disciple, engage with, and release young people across this area.
This has been 18 months in the dreaming, consulting, engaging, and developing, and we are really excited at RolltheRock to be one of the partners in releasing this vision on the evening.
For more information about venue, and the next steps, please do email email@example.com and he will get info to you.
This is an exciting time, and a real time of breakthrough for the young people in the Harrogate area.
