Youth and Young Adult Ministry








Youth and young adult ministry in Victoria and Tasmania is working towards young people becoming ‘mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ’ (Ephesians 4:13), especially in the context of an antagonistic culture.  There are a number of ways we work towards this goal.

Each year a number of camps and events are held to help grow, support, and nurture the faith of young people throughout the Victorian and Tasmania District.  These ministries are run primarily by volunteers who are passionate and committed to youth and young adult faith formation.
