2013 World Conference on Youth & Community Service

The World Conference on Youth and Community Services will convene in Pretoria, South Africa from July 1 to 13, 2013. Youth from around the world will participate in this noble cause. The project will bring senior youth and young adults, ages 16 to 35, from every world division of the church.

What is the World Conference on Youth & Community Service?
The World Conference on Youth and Community Service is sponsored by the General Conference Youth Ministries Department. Our aim is to develop global unity and to set up a model for youth ministry in Discipleship, Community, and Mission for young people, 16-35 years old.

The WCYCS comprises two phases:
During the first phase (1-6 July)  South Africa will be saturated with service projects like orphanage visitation and improvements, construction, HIV Aids awareness and prevention, school developments, community beautification projects, health expos, sports training, as well as evangelistic meetings. These will be all carried out by participating groups from all over the world in partnership with local youths.

The second phase (8-13 July) will bring all service project participants as well as others to Pretoria for a celebration of what God would have done through our youth in the first phase and for the development of global community through small groups, Discipleship, focused mission training, and worship.
