Have you been challenged in your faith by the stories of persecuted Christians?
We definitely have!
One of the things we’ve learned is that we need the persecuted church more than they need us. We have so much to learn from them about following Jesus and being unashamed of the Gospel.
Thirteen Three at KYCK
Thirteen Three was asked to run a seminar at KYCK this year, a youth conference attended by over 5,000 people. The theme of our seminar was A Radical Life: Lessons from the Persecuted Church.
Our Ambassadors shared some of the lessons they have learned from our persecuted family and challenged youth at KYCK to live radically for Christ.
Here are the four lessons from our Ambassadors:
- Unashamed (Bron Mercer)
- Joy in Suffering (Tadhg Parker)
- Bold Evangelism (Bec Sparkes)
- Perseverance (David Low)
David Hanzen is a youth leader who was at the seminar. He wrote on our Facebook Timeline:
I have just come back from KYCK and as a youth group leader took some of my youth to your seminar. I just want to say thank you. The youth that went were challenged a lot and are now thinking about how we can support Thirteen Three.
It was awesome to hear what our Ambassadors have learned from the persecuted church, but we’d love to hear from you too!
