What is Baptist Youth?
Baptist Youth is the youth department of the Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland with the vision of “working together … transforming a generation” Essentially we are a vehicle for the Baptist churches across Ireland to work together strategically to see the coming generation of children and young people transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We do this through a variety of events, activities, schools ministry and training. Our summer programme of camps and teams provides opportunities for young people to serve God, share the gospel, make friends and impact communities.
God uses camp to change lives! We have seen evidence of this down through many years of running children’s and youth camps. The camp programme is designed to give children an unforgettable holiday in a Christian environment. We are very clear to make the gospel a priority in our teaching sessions and when the example of the leader is on display 24/7 it is a powerful combination. Camps range from ages 8-16 and are located from Armagh to Coleraine to Edinburgh. We are always in need of more leaders to help out at camp. If you are over 18 and have some free time in the summer we would love to have you along as a leader on camp. You will have a very encouraging time having input into the life of a young person.
God can accomplish so much, even through giving up one week of summer holidays specifically for evangelism. When you get involved in a team God will work on your relationship with him, teaching you new things, challenging you about your values and giving you a glimpse of His great purpose for the world. You will be motivated to pray and you will be stretched and develop abilities you never imagined you could have. You will work with and learn from a team of leaders who themselves experience the privilege responsibility and excitement of serving God in His work. We have 10 teams taking place across Ireland for anyone aged 16 or over. We have two over 18 teams taking place in London and Spain. Are you ready to have you faith tested on the streets of Ireland, London and Spain?
