A letter from our State  Directors

Youth Alive Victoria exists to reach, raise, resource and revive a generation through the things of God.

2022 has been an incredible year for Youth Alive Victoria that has seen us reach many thousands of teenagers through evangelistic events and also partner with Youth Ministries to see leaders trained and resourced.

Throughout the year, we have seen the return of many of our events and the launch of some exciting new initiatives, including the Youth Ministry Evangelism Fund; resourcing the vision of local youth ministry evangelism, and our first-ever Young Adults event.

We're so proud to have seen this ministry and many youth pastors and leaders around the State take a step forward toward reaching more young people across Victoria and enlarging their vision for the future.

As you read below, we pray that you'll be encouraged by all the wins we've seen in 2022 - A year that has far exceeded all our expectations!

We’d like to thank our amazing volunteers and staff who contribute their time and skill, our financial supporters who have enabled so many lives to be reached, and pastors across the State who are investing in young people. Together we share a vision of reaching young people for Jesus, and together we are laying the foundation for increasingly strong youth ministries across the State of Victoria for years to come.
