HOPE Revolution to release young people in UK mission
Thousands of young Christians will be released by HOPE Revolution to lead word and action mission across the UK in 2014.
HOPE Revolution is the youth arm of the HOPE mission movement, which is working to unite churches in mission.
It is supporting thousands of churches across the UK as they plan their mission activities for the year of outreach.
Young people will be resourced to pioneer mission through new Mission Academies. The first pilot Mission Academies were started in 2012 and they are now being rolled out across London and nationwide.
The Mission Academies will equip 14 to 18-year-olds to become bold followers of Jesus with the courage to share their faith and encourage their peers to do the same.
The effort is being supported by the Crossing London mission initiative.
Colin Saunders, of the Crossing London team, said: "With the encouragement of their local church and their Mission Academy learning community, we want to see them step out of their comfort zones to demonstrate God's love through words and action 24/7.
"The goal is a generation of young people living a lifestyle of mission."
