Imagine a group of gifted young people in the current generation who pursue a call to serve young people who are lacking in self-belief, hope, and faith in a love that surpasses everything else. Imagine a community of people rallying around these selfless young people year after year, enabling them to reach 16,000 teenagers annually.
Imagine high school students around the country walking into a reflection day defensive and despondent, only to walk away having made a commitment to open up to Christ. This has been the vision of Youth Mission Team Australia since 1986 and it has been fulfilled in reality since then each year.
Their mission statement is “To embrace a Christian community lifestyle and to bear witness to the power and relevance of the gospel to students in high schools through the witness of that lifestyle and by creating a space in which students can make a free choice to invite christ into their life.”
