Opportunities
to serve with
children & youth

In sharing the gospel with children & young people our hope is to develop disciple making disciples – to demonstrate God’s immeasurable love for children and to offer them the reassurance and peace that a relationship with him can bring.

A large part of Africa

Children & youth make up a large part of Africa. In fact, 47% of Africans are under the age of 18, which means it’s hard to do ministry in Africa without affecting young people. There are so many ways to minister to children & youth in Africa, from working amongst street children in Uganda, caring for the needs of children in South Sudan, running a kids club amongst an unreached people or supporting mission partners by teaching their children. Our desire in all of these activities is to share Jesus, make him known and encourage children in their own walk with him.

In sharing the gospel with children & young people our hope is to develop disciple making disciples – to demonstrate God’s immeasurable love for children and to offer them the reassurance and peace that a relationship with him can bring. For mission partners children and even children in the UK we hope there will be an excitement for all that God is doing in our world and an awareness that they can play a part in that activity, now and in the future.

Could you be part of this incredible life changing work? Could you be involved in a child’s journey of faith & development and be part of what God is doing in Africa and across the world?
