From David Ridley, Executive Assistant to the National Director, Conrad Parsons

Youth for Christ in Australia is praising God for a fantastic start to 2012. The year kicked off with the National Conference in Adelaide in January. There were many new faces, bringing fresh vision and drive with them to the movement.

International President David Wraight presented  the importance of walking in your calling, raising up young leaders, prayer, and what the Kingdom of God looks like. Please pray that the staff and volunteers will be filled with the fullness of God, walking worthy of their callings and completing the good works that God has planned for them this year.

Youth for Christ’s growing National Administration Team, led by Rod Harvey, has added finance assistants Allison Washington and Sarah Price, who bring passion and eagerness to the movement. Please pray for Rod Harvey as he heads up the administration and finance for all the Youth for Christ centres; please pray for wisdom and the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

A theme across Australia is alignment with the mission: “To participate in the body of Christ in responsible evangelism of youth, presenting them with the person, work and teachings of Christ and discipling them into the local church”. Youth for Christ in Australia exists to see young people meet Jesus and make Him their Lord and Saviour. This is an intrinsically spiritual mission that strives to apply spiritual principals.

Thank you for partnering with Youth for Christ by praying for the young people of Australia. Pray that God would use Youth for Christ as a mouthpiece to proclaim the gospel to a broken and hurting generation.
