About YNET Conference
It is vital that the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed and modelled to young people because, from little children through to those entering adulthood, they can experience God’s call and have a relationship with Jesus. YNET Conference exists to provide training for leadership teams of local churches in growing their ministry to young people. It is for any leaders involved in Christian ministry to children, teenagers and young adults. This is a great opportunity to connect with others in similar ministries, be equipped from God’s word, be shaped by experienced practitioners, and be refreshed in gospel service.
A core value of YNET is faithfulness to God’s Word. Each year our goal is to have a trustworthy, dynamic communicator of God’s Word challenge and encourage us to be growing in our likeness to Christ, as well as in ministry to young people.
Sessions are the main teaching time, where we hear from the Bible, but also have the opportunity to hear from each other and share some ministry ideas.
The evening seminars provide an opportunity to apply the Bible teaching to your ministry area, whether Children's or Youth & Young Adults. An experienced presenter will share from their experience but also draw from the shared experience in the room to benefit the group.
Workshops are an 'all-in' learning time on a subject relevant to leaders across ministry areas. Subject matter might range from skills such as 'Accidental Counselling' to topics that encourage spiritual growth lives of leaders.
Electives give you the practical training and theological underpinning that is needed for ministering to young people. Core electives will be available each year and other YNET electives will vary from year to year.
In this session leaders from your church and/or ministry team will get together and talk about the things they are learning at YNET and how they can apply when they get back home.
