BRITAIN: 2012 Olympics in London

Youth for Christ is proud to be a part of the “More Than Gold” organisation linking Christian organisations together who are bringing mission teams into the UK around the time of the Olympics.

Youth for Christ countries are encouraged to bring teams to England for the summer of 2012.

As decided at a “More Than Gold” committee meeting last week (where YWAM, Salvation Army, Samaritan’s Purse and other organisations were discussing a recruitment process for the summer), there will be a taster conference for potential team leaders, training for teams when they get here, a welcome pack and more. All that’s needed at present is leaders and their teams to sign up.

There are lots of different activities being organised, so the aim is to channel ‘emphasis’ teams (eg. sports, creative arts etc) into specific locations/churches to help with their outreaches.

If your Youth for Christ group has an interest in bringing a team to the Olympics in 2012, please contact Judy Lloyd using the form below.
