A2A Youth Camp Leadership Preparation
How wonderful that we are part of a movement where not only our Senior Leaders, but also our Youth Leaders and Pastors are gathering together intentionally to grow in unity, understanding and faith. On Saturday 9th September, we had A2A Youth Leaders gather from Riverview, Gold Coast, Lismore and Ipswich to be equipped and refreshed leading up to our SEQ/Northern NSW A2A Youth Camp coming up at the end of this month.
Together we discussed all of Acts 2 – including what do we see in action – and what are we hungry to see more of in both our own lives, and the lives of our young people. We expressed together a passion for seeing each other live out our true identity in Christ; being woken up to all that God has in store for us, no matter our life stage. The morning then lead to discussion of the Discipleship Bible Study model (adapted from Steve Addison) and some debrief models, so that all leaders can feel equipped to teach our young people both at camp and moving forward how to reach their friends, and unpack anything they may experience with God or others.
After lunch we heard from Anton Scott about operating in Spiritual gifts, and then with his facilitation broke into groups and put into practice these principles and asking God for the gifts of healing, prophecy, and asking the Holy Spirit to come. We even saw two leaders speak in tongues for the first time!
What a great opportunity to continue to seek the Kingdom of God in all generations, we all left feeling thoroughly refreshed, and excited for all that God is going to do this weekend at camp!
