Hello from lockdown
Well, how things have changed in a week!!! Young people, parents, and church leaders are looking to us youth leaders to know a way forward. Because we are their leaders, young people need us to remind them there is hope in this darkness. Parents look to us for help in home learning and input for their children. Church leaders - because they think we know the online space so much better. I have had to take myself back to the core of why we do what we do this week. We are here to reach and disciple young people because that is what Jesus has called us to do in the great commissions - preach the gospel and making disciples of Him! What does it all hang on… the gospel! Romans 1:16-17, in the NIV-UK, tells us the gospel is ‘the power of God that brings salvation’ and that we should not be ashamed of the gospel for that reason. Also, it tells us that the gospel is faith-based and its foundation is faith, we are made right with God by faith and called to live by faith. Therefore what can we be saying to young people, parents, and church leaders? Simply… FAITH OVER FEAR! What is our response to what we are facing in our nation… FAITH OVER FEAR! #faithoverfear

Faith over fear
I would love to commend our good friends at Youth For Christ, who have a plethora of great online resources, which can all be found here but I would like to highlight two key resources to you that will help in reaching young people with the gospel in this season and beyond.
