Welcome to this year’s Youth for Christ team!
Welcome to this year’s Youth for Christ team!

On Sunday we welcomed our new Youth for Christ team based at Amblecote Christian Centre. In addition to ‘The Sense’ touring team we also have our very own media intern, Sophie, who will be based in our office two days a week. It continues to be a huge blessing to partner with Youth for Christ, seeing young people’s lives transformed as they give a year of their lives to serving Jesus. Here’s an introduction to each of the Youth for Christ team, with a slightly longer introduction for our media intern.

Hi! I’m Sophie from Llandudno, North Wales. I’m really excited to be spending a year on Youth for Christ’s Year Out Media Stream Programme, working at Amblecote doing media and communications! During the next academic year I’ll be getting training in media and communications and doing some youthwork. I’m looking forward to learning new things, stepping out and being stretched! I know that God will be with me every moment.

Why have I chosen to do this? I like working with cameras and doing filming and editing, I have studied it a little bit in the past and I was ready for something new. The Youth for Christ gap year looked like exactly the right thing to have a go at and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me this year!

I hope to see young people connect to/changed by Jesus, through media. I’d like to develop my media and communications skills this year and also to go further and deeper in my personal relationship with God.

Bring on the adventure!
