Dear Youth for Christ family,

For the last three years, we have needed to pause our gatherings together. We are happy to announce that we are unpausing and preparing for an epic gathering to celebrate! What is there to celebrate? We will celebrate the goodness of God. We will celebrate that while the world was locked down, you continued to figure out new ways to build relationships with young people to show them the way to Jesus. We will celebrate you being there to meet the needs of young people, families, neighborhoods, and communities despite numerous challenges. We will celebrate how God provided for us through some desperate times. We will celebrate the mission that God continues to move forward without ceasing. And best of all, Lord willing, we will celebrate together.

We are happy, excited, thrilled, ecstatic to announce that GA is back in 2023! We invite you to join us at GA2023 in the Netherlands.

“This is one of the highlights in the history of Youth for Christ in the Netherlands. We have the honour and privilege to welcome hundreds of colleagues out of our international Youth for Christ family from all over the world. We are pleased to meet up with you and celebrate with you that Jesus is Lord and encourage each other in the precious mission we have!” -Bram Rebergen, Youth for Christ Netherlands National Director

The dates for GA2023 are 19-25 October 2023. Plan to arrive on the 18th so that you can join in the day of prayer on the 19th to kick off GA (more information to follow). Registration begins in January 2023 so put the dates on your calendar, pray for God to provide all you need to come to GA (we are praying!), and plan on gathering to celebrate all that God has done in us and through us.

Praying with you for peace in our world,

Dave Brereton

International Director of Youth for Christ
