HOPE Revolution News Dec 2015
………………………………………………………………………………………………

Phil TimpsonAs we approach the Christmas season, it is so exciting to hear the stories of young people boldly sharing their faith through words and actions. Last week I heard how ‘significant and lasting’ change has happened in the lives of young people off the back of the recent Step Out Tour in Ulvaston where young people are now challenging each other to look for intentional ways to share their faith. One young man has been sharing his faith on the school bus. Another has shared her faith to the whole class, explaining her faith as a relationship with Jesus, not simply a belief, whilst one 13 year old has managed not only to pray for, but to lead her friend back to Jesus in the toilets! 

2104 has been another exciting year where HOPE Revolution has the privilege of uniting and empowering young people to work together for the purpose of mission. Momentum is growing as we now build to 2018. We look forward to releasing and equipping 1000s more young people to be missional leaders in their own right, creatively bringing the love of Jesus to the world around them. This Christmas edition gives you three very simple ways that we can serve you in this vision.

………………………………………………………………………………………………
ONE: Host a Step Out Tour
HR Step Out Flyer Do you long to see God do amazing works amongst young people? Would you like to see young people in your area ‘Go and make disciples’ as instructed by Jesus before he ascended into heaven? With dates still available throughout 2016, why not consider booking the Step Out Tour for your area? Recently the Step Out Tour has seen tremendous fruit with 100s of young people coming to faith and many more young people choosing to intentionally live a lifestyle of ‘Stepping Out’ to reach their peers for Jesus. HTB Youth were the latest to host Phil Timson this month in the delivery of this tour, alongside Penrith, Ulvaston and Norwich, but this is just the beginning. Throughout 2016 we would love to come to your area as part of a youth gathering near you. The tour is delivered FREE of charge, so please do give it some prayerful consideration and check out the youth page of the main HOPE website, for more information. 

"Phil pitched it perfectly. His passion for Jesus and evangelism inspired many young people and leaders to ‘step out of the boat’ with evangelism". Matt Harris, Reigate

"The Step Out Tour youth event was huge success for us. Not only did we have over 100 people attending but we also saw our biggest response rate, with 20 young people making decisions to follow Jesus, some for the very first time and at least another 60 (I lost count!) wanting to step out more and take risks in their pursuit of Jesus!" Nick Blanch, Norwich

Philpreach"The way you connected individually and personally with them, making every effort to talk to just about every young person here did not go unnoticed and I feel made a deep impression on many of them." Lisa Smith, Ulvaston

"The Step Out Tour event was an evening of challenge with refreshing honesty and humility. Phil Timson presented the brilliance of sharing our faith but was realistic to a room full of teens about how that can feel. His own experiences and stories, combined with an obvious passion for God's kingdom, made for an entertaining and Spirit-filled talk. I cannot recommend this evening enough. If you want yourself and your teens to be encouraged... go go go! Step Out and see what happens." Ruth Evans, Penrith

TWO: Join us at the Youth Evangelism Conference -
Sat 27th February 2016

YECLOgoHOPE Revolution has recognised, with others, the very real gap in the Christian youth work sector, for a targeted youth leader conference on evangelism. Not anymore! The YEC conference seeks to raise both urgency and confidence for evangelism. It is partnering with key youth agencies to awaken the Church to the great challenge and opportunity to put sharing the life-changing message of Jesus, back at the top of our agenda. This conference will meet a clear need in contemporary youth ministry providing much needed training and inspiration around evangelism. Be inspired by Neil O Boyle, the new national director of Youth For Christ, one of two keynote speakers on the day.

To book your place at this fantastic event click here. The cost is only £20 before 31st December and £30 thereafter. However, this exceptional offer becomes half price, ONLY £10 for all those who unite with us in empowering young people for mission by becoming a HOPE Revolution advocate for your area. A vision goes further when it is shared. Join with us in the exciting adventure.

THREE: Become a HOPE Revolution Advocate

GroupAs we now build to 2018, we are looking for advocates across the UK who we can serve in uniting and empowering young people through ‘youth-led’ mission. Join with us in encouraging a permission-giving culture where young people, with effective accountability, can be equipped and released to be missional leaders in their own right.  We want to serve young people on the ground, and to do this we would love to serve you. 

If you want to see young people practically sharing their faith and would like us to serve you as we build to a massive year of mission in 2018, then choose to do more, together in word and action and sign up as an advocate today. For more information please go to www.hopetogether.org.uk. With our national partnerships, and your local expertise, together we can mobilise a generation of young people to be bold and dangerous disciples of Jesus.

Have a great Christmas and a hope-filled New Year
