safricaFrom May 10-17th, Youth for Christ’s Area Directors and Regional Directors were together in South Africa for Training and Area meetings.

Each morning started at 7:00am with prayer and worship, each session led by a different Area. This gave a good flavour of Youth for Christ  and its different cultures. Each morning after breakfast, participants received training using modules developed by Youth for Christ International. Modules included “Building a Strong Board of Directors,” “Coaching of National Directors” and “Young Leader Development.”

In the afternoon, attendees took time to meet with others from their Area and discuss how they could use what they learned during the training times, also doing various team-building tests. Finally, the Directors worked together on the International strategy of Youth for Christ, with three main topics: Spiritual Health; ONE YFC; and Exponential Evangelism.

Ideas on how to work these out were developed, priorities were discussed and everyone prayed for God’s guidance and wisdom. It was a very busy, inspiring, unifying week in which God’s presence and providence was clear for all who attended.
