Coordinator – Shaun Bati
The NYI is the youth arm of the Church, representing upwards of 100 000 people aged 12 to 40 within its structures. The primary goal of the ministry is to play an active role in ensuring that young people form a deep and active relationship with Christ. It is through listening to Christ that the youth in Africa can grow in to life-changing leaders. NYI initiatives and events seek to build on capacity to consistently and effectively engage African youth.
The ministry places its focus on developing and supporting youth in various aspects including, but not limited to: politics, entrepreneurship and leadership. To this end, the NYI hosted a conference in Johannesburg, South Africa from 12 to 16 December 2016, called Nazarene Youth Connection. The event was attended by over 500 people and held fruitful discussions around the theme: “Chosen to Change”.
NYC 2016 Highlights
With 200 million people aged between 15 and 24 (the youth bracket), Africa has the youngest population in the world. This means that the NYI ministry in the region has the appropriate opportunity and platform to groom a significant number of future leaders on the continent. NYI takes its duty seriously, as it guides young Africans in taking their rightful place as leaders of the future.
