National Youth Strat


As an Army we are committed to ensuring vibrant and healthy expressions of youth ministry as part of our broader faith communities. This is why we believe a nation-wide strategy for youth ministry is important in moving forward.


'Inspiring and equipping youth to follow God, connect well with others, find personal significance, and make a positive difference in their world'.

In order to achieve this we need your help:

  • On this page you will find a number of documents which provide information and updates around the strategy that you are more than welcome to use.
  • If you have any great innovative ideas we'd love to hear them. Send them our way at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. but above all be praying for the young people and leaders of our youth ministry in Aotearoa.
