As YWAM Townsville looks to strengthen, influence, and build capacity locally; the opportunity arose to deliberately partner with church youth groups. The Reef to Outback DTS have been able to involve half the students into four local churches which meet on a weekly bases. They have been sharing personal stories and teachings on different topics each week to challenge and champion the youth of Townsville to lead out in their spheres of influence. It is great to impact our community in this way and the DTS students are loving it.
“I am so blessed to have gone to the churches with my team. We were so impressed with the youth at that church. We shared personal experiences, why God wants to communicate with us, and about developing our relationships with Him. One girl shared about how she could see through God’s creation that everyone is beautiful in their unique ways, and God loves us so much! She also realized that we should treat each other equally, and see each other in the way that God sees us.
Overall, it was a great experience, and I am so excited for next week!”
