YOUTH GATHERING

Searching for aspiring servants of the Lord ministering in the 21st Century.

Prior to the General Council of the World Communion of Reformed Churches: Be part of the World Communion of Reformed Churches. Experience Christian fellowship, explore what it looks like to be a disciple of Christ Jesus in our unique contexts.

23-28 June 2017: Leipzig, Germany

Six days of study, fellowship and networking:

  • Social transformation: Social justice
  • Global challenges: Climate change
  • Models of change: Post-Growth movements
  • Spirituality: Praying and Bible study
  • Methods: Lectures, debates, panel discussions

Finances: Please, help us!

The youth gathering does not have the funds to reimburse international traveling.
Therefore, we call upon all churches to form Youth Gathering partnerships which will allow youth groups from the Global South to attend the Youth Gathering as well.

Please help us as an ambassador for your country or continent, to identify the right youth-participants of the Reformed Churches in your area.
Get assistance for planning the journey to Leipzig. Our office supports young people or youth groups with their travel arrangements: booking of flights, visa applications
