Youth Ministry

Serving, supporting and strengthening

Word of Life exists to partner with youth ministries in New Zealand to evangelise and disciple youth. Our goal is to cultivate Gospel advancing youth ministries: where leaders and youth are excited and equipped to intentionally be sharing the gospel. Our vision is to see every young person in our nation impacted by the gospel through a friend, and we think the local church is where it starts! To see this, we partner with youth ministries to serve, support and strengthen, as they engage in gospel advancement and discipleship.


Partner with youth ministries to meet specific needs which build trusting relationships and cultivate a gospel advancing culture.


Develop deeper relationships through care, prayer and encouragement of youth pastors and key leaders.


Leverage trusting relationships to equip and train youth leaders in biblical foundations for youth ministry and gospel advancing principles.


Word of Life loves to intentionally serve, support and strengthen youth ministries at a personal level. A great way to do this is over coffee! We want to get to know youth pastors, understand their youth ministry and ask how we can serve them with the resources and tools we have. If you are interested in meeting with one of our team over coffee (or a beverage of your choice), click here! We would love to get to know you and your youth ministry better.

Advance Programme

The Advance Programme is a three stage programme in which we seek to serve and equip youth ministries. It is geared towards creating and sustaining Gospel advancing culture within youth ministries around New Zealand. Read more about the Advance Programme below to see if it would benefit your youth ministry.


Events are a core tool that we use to serve youth ministries and reach young people with the Gospel. Our events are a platform for the Gospel to be clearly shared, and therefore are a great opportunity for youth to invite their friends to have a fun night, and hear the Gospel. Our desire is that our events may be a catalyst for young people to share their faith, and for youth to be impacted with the good news of Jesus Christ!

Leadership Conference

Our annual leadership conference is a great place to gather with other youth leaders from around the country, learn together and gain valuable insight in to youth ministry.


Word of Life publishes curriculum for three different age groups to help children and youth ministries teach the Word of God. Our curriculum is firmly rooted in Biblical doctrine and teaches Biblical principles, helping students connect God's Word to their lives in a very real and personal way.


Word of Life provides Daily Devotional books to guide believers in developing the habit of listening to God through daily Bible reading and application, as well as talking with God in prayer. We have Quiet Time books available for six different age groups, so can be a great tool for the whole family.
