An overseas mission trip with a focus on evangelism and personal growth
Youth Reachout is a three week mission trip overseas for teenagers aged 16 and over. The trip is split into two parts: The first week is training and equipping the team for evangelism with tools such as dramas and songs. The next 2 weeks are spent traveling around the country and telling locals at churches and schools about the gospel.
Not only are you spending time inputting into the local lives, but you yourself grow with personal input and electives from our team leaders, aimed for team members to grow themselves in God.
"I didn't really know what to expect going on Youth Reachout, but it certainly wasn't the experience that I came away with. On the trip I shared the gospel message with someone for the first time, I was challenged in how I was living in relation to authorities in my life and about having a daily Quiet Time, I shared my testimony and was pushed outside of my comfort zone well and truly. However I will also say that was an experience that I am never going to forget. I made friends for life, I grew in ways that I never thought I would and I know that I would never be where I am today without that trip or the people on it that invested in me."

"Three weeks was all it took to change my entire perspective on life. Youth Reachout was an incredible opportunity to grow in my confidence and love for the Lord. I’m so grateful for the conversations I had as it has helped me to not have doubts about what I believe but to stand firm so that I can live the best life as an ambassador of Christ. Mission stretched me in ways I’d never imagine, from the intense beauty of a blue starfish or just dwelling in His presence with other brothers and sisters in Christ. One particular time during the trip I had the privilege to lead several young girls to the Lord at Samoa College. Through this I realised that no matter where I am in the world I should never have an excuse to not share the unfailing love of our Heavenly Father!"
