Resource Funding

We have ideas to create a number of resources that will enable youth leaders to engage better with their young people around issues of identity and discipleship. We are also keen to develop resources to help leaders themselves, as they grow in their roles.

We are now looking for individuals to invest in the creation of these resources.

We need 20 people to invest £50 each into RolltheRock as a one-off gift, to enable us to explore these initiatives further.

Could you be one of those people?

If you would like to invest in the development of creative resources that enable young people and youth leaders to grow, please email info@rolltherock.org.uk and let us know that you want to be one of our resource resourcers!

Our hope is to launch these resources in the Spring, so please do consider this and let us know as soon as you can if you are able to support us in this way.

Bless you and, in advance, thanks.

Bravery of Legacy

Recently, I've been doing some exploring around the whole issue of legacy, the barriers to legacy and also what enables it. But it got me thinking, how much do we actually consider the legacy we leave to others?

What is it that we would want to be remembered for?

What is it that we are imparting to others that they can run with?

None of us I guess likes the thought of removing ourselves from a situation or context, especially one where we are seeing God at work in people's lives and seeing lives being transformed. But the reality is that we are not around forever, and it is important - vital - to develop a legacy so that others can take on the baton of the race and go further.

Jesus left an amazing legacy, hence why so much of the world now engages in relationship with him in Heaven. He journeyed with a small number of people, spent time with them, shared his vision and enabled people to have a go at what they saw him do. How much of this do we actually do ourselves?

I am so thankful for the input of others in my life and the leadership I have received. Now I hope to have learnt from them and release others to go further than I can go.

Where are you on the legacy scale?

Mentoring leaders 

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.
