At its heart, “The Great Commission” (Matt 28:16-20) is a call to pass on the faith by making disciples who follow in the footsteps of Jesus. A key part of discipling is the way the Church nurtures and encourages children, youth and young adults within its family. We seek to resource the next generations of Christian faith by inviting younger people to join in God’s mission, equipping and releasing them to do so.
The Discipling the Next Generations Circle is an invitation to be involved with how the Assembly supports our next generation of leaders and to connect with others who are passionate about this space.
Open to everyone, Circle members will have the opportunity to learn more about and to participate in the ways we do this, including the creation of resources, developing intergenerational awareness in diverse settings and the initiation and support of national youth events.
Meet our Advocate and get to know our panel members.
