Archbishop’s chattering about mission
A group of young people from Derby have used HOPE Rev’s Chatterbox to come up with creative ways to share their faith with their friends. Also, they attended the Church of England Synod in York last Saturday where they explained their experience of the Fun-size Mission Academy. The young people demonstrated the Chatterbox to both the Archbishops, who were fully supportive of the initiative. Having discussed it together, the Archbishops showcased the Chatterbox on their desk in full view of the 500 or so synod members gathered. The young people spoke to 100s of people throughout the day, including numerous Bishops, who now understand the great opportunity that the Chatterbox provides to encourage young people to share their faith. The passion and ability the young people showed in communicating the Fun-size Mission Academy made the day a tremendous success. A big thanks to Dan, Alex, Alex, Rachel, Sam and Abby, a bunch of massively inspiring young people, who continue to take risks to be bold and dangerous for Jesus.

Youth workers from all across the country have been ordering the Chatterbox to provide the simple excuse for young people to own practical mission ideas to impact their area and peers. Over 40,000 have already been distributed, with many youth groups choosing to use it as a one-off activity for the summer holidays, as young people seek to reach out to friends.

Youth Survey
Evang

A youth survey in August’s ‘Youthwork’ magazine, showed that out of the five categories of ‘Teaching, Community, Social Action, Evangelism and an experience of God’ ‘Evangelism’ was ranked the least important element of church. Within the context of this survey, this may not be surprising; however it does raise an opportunity for this to be explored more deeply. HOPE Revolution is well placed to serve our many partners in commissioning a detailed youth survey on evangelism amongst young people today. The results would inform the church and youth practitioners with the information that could be used to see a generation of young people better equipped, trained and resourced for effective evangelism in today’s ever changing youth context. If there are questions that you feel should be considered please be in touch as it is critical that this work, if commissioned, is responsive to the actual challenges we are facing in seeing young people released as ambassadors and witnesses for Jesus.

HOPE Rev advocates
It has been exciting to see so many youth workers stepping up as a ‘HOPE Rev advocate’ as we now begin to dream and to build to mission together in 2018. We are looking to grow a strong team of advocates across the UK. The HOPE Rev partnership will serve these advocates in furthering a grassroots mission agenda for young people across our nation. Could you become a HOPE Rev advocate?
  • Do you currently work with young people in either a voluntary or paid capacity?
  • Do you want to see young people practically and effectively sharing their faith?
  • Would you like to be involved shaping our year of mission in 2018?
  • Could you roll out the Chatterbox tool in your region and be a catalyst to explore a short term mission taking place in your area?
If the answer is yes, then we would love to hear from you to discuss this opportunity further. With God’s help, our national partnerships, and your local expertise, together we can mobilise a generation of young people to be the bold and dangerous disciples of Jesus that he calls and commands us to be.
