Core Values

  • Evangelism & Discipleship

    We are committed to taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all young people and always seek to do so with urgency, using the most culturally acceptable means. We are further committed to provide a ministry of discipleship for each new believer, and to work in partnership with others who desire to accomplish the same mission.

  • Scripture

    We are committed to the Word of God as the foundation and final authority for life and ministry. We discipline ourselves to study it diligently, apply it daily, and teach its truth to young people.

  • Prayer

    We are committed to pray and fast for the salvation of lost young people and for the empowerment of God’s Holy Spirit in taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them.

  • Church

    Believing that the Church is the expression of the body of Christ, we are committed to working in partnership with the local church in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

  • People

    We are committed to people. We believe that young people, volunteers, board members, ministry partners, staff and their families are important first as individuals, and all are vital in the fulfilment of the mission.

  • Mobilisation

    Knowing the size and urgency of the task, we are committed to mobilising all the available resources of young people, adults, prayer and finances to accomplish the mission.

  • Integrity

    We are committed to a life of integrity through personal and organisational accountability in lifestyle, relationships, finances, ministry management and responsible evangelism.
