In September, a number of Youth for Christ nations met in The Netherlands to share ideas and best practices. Here are quotes from two Youth for Christ staff in attendance.
“It was really good to have contact with the international colleagues and to see what Rock Solid is working out amongst young people. Sharing our experiences and resources for reaching young people with the good news of Jesus was a great thing to do.” Ruud Bouman – Youth for Christ in The Netherlands
“God blessed me with the opportunity to be at a meeting in The Netherlands dedicated to youth club ministry. Youth for Christ in Ukraine got a lot from the meeting. I met youth club ministry coordinators from 5 nations, which is the start of further friendship and cooperation. I was particularly inspired by the scale of youth club ministry of Youth for Christ in The Netherlands and in the UK. I was encouraged to expand our resources in the Ukraine. We agreed to cooperate and, therefore, Youth for Christ in Ukraine will soon be able to equip our clubs with new quality resources and, most importantly, with a unique new system for how to run the club program. The experience and the power of the club ministry of The Netherlands stimulated me to desire intensive development. Clubs of The Netherlands and Ukraine will be able to become good friends soon and help each other.” Oleksandr Dubinin – National Director Youth for Christ in Ukraine
