Youth Alive has existed since 1982 and has seen more than 300,000 teenagers make faith commitments nation-wide. At our core we exist to REACH young people with the gospel, RAISE up leaders, and RESOURCE churches. Ultimately, we are here to support, strengthen and REVIVE youth ministries across the nation, and to future-proof the church by offering development pathways for young leaders to grow into great leaders, experienced in leading young people to Christ, discipling and multiplying the believers around them.
We are excited to expand our core operating model in Victoria to now offer another layer of support to the Youth Ministries we serve. We want to help resource the vision of Youth Ministries who are believing to reach teenagers in their local areas. For many Youth Ministries, we know that your vision may be bigger than your resource. This is where this fund comes in…. Youth Alive Victoria has raised finances through individuals and churches who believe in the next generation, and because of their generosity, we are now able to offer grants of between $1000 and $5000 to help local youth ministries reach more teenagers.
In the Bible, David used a slingshot to take out Goliath. If you’ve got something big you’re believing to do, this fund can help provide the stones you need to take down a giant.
We are believing that this fund will help successful applicants turn the tide in their Youth Ministry.
