And there is a growing increase of Islamic influence in certain regions. The typical Belgian, enjoys good beer and French fries. He also never misses an opportunity to party.
And Youth for Christ Belgium in all this? Celebrating a year of ministry in October 2018, Youth for Christ has mobilized numerous churches to organize evangelistic projects and events in their own cities. YFC Belgium has given birth to 2 outreaches ” Bouge ta Ville Liège ” in 2014 and 2015. After these events, many young people expressed their desire to serve and to know Jesus better.
So, why stop with just annual events?
In spite of Belgium being a small country, the potential for youth ministry is quite impressive. YFC Belgium aims to challenge these young people to serve God and to work together in unity with various churches.
