"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12
What is GROW: Youth Discipleship Ambassadors?
Whether you are part of a large thriving youth group, or the only young person connected with your church, GROW is about investing in young people as disciples of Jesus. Together we explore themes of community, love, generosity, worship and sharing faith through small group discussion and the completion of a variety of tasks and challenges - all deeply rooted in how we each Live Christ's Story.
GROW: Discipleship Youth Ambassadors is for young people between the ages of 11-16. Participants will spend a year exploring themes above, and at the end of the year, participants are commissioned as a Youth Discipleship Ambassadors, equipped to be more actively involved in mission and ministry with their church, and in supporting younger people on their faith journeys.
Where and When?
In 2024, GROW will take place in 6 locations across the diocese: Northallerton and Mowbray Deanery, Malton, Helmsley, York, Selby and Beverley. The gathered sessions will be 1h30 in length, in February, March, April and May, with the Commissioning service taking place on 16th June. Details of dates and times will be given once a young person has expressed an interest in participating.
