Two years ago, together with leaders and pastors of Central Asia, we accepted the revelation and vision for our continent: to reach 2% of young people between the age 5-25 in Central Asia to build christian community that impact this generation in every nation by 2022 year.
We believe in young generation who are able to do tremendous and crazy things for Jesus. We are aware that youth the revival will come, that’s why we want to invest everything we have today for the young guys.
To reach this generation we need to unite with other churches. Every year we organize the Congresses TWO22, where we invite main leaders and pastors to create the new ideas and projects. We discuss about how to effectively using different spheres (social media, films, events, personal evangelize) to reach this generation and make the presentations of the Gospel in each region. After the congress, many churches, leaders start to be so active, continuing their movement during the year. It is so amazing to see how the different churches in different regions join together for the common purpose and vision. We believe in a power of unity, and together we are able to come to this big vision 2% by 2022 year.
Our church, the Compel Church, launched 6 months ago. More than 70% of our members are below 25. We just hosted our youth conference in July. The iMAKE conference gathered 200 youth from different cities and countries. About 70 unbelievers had a chance to listen the Gospel. Today we have 13 home groups and so far we baptized 16 people.
Our mission is to impact and invest the youngest generation, sadly many churches don’t do it. Everything we do today at our church is directed to teenagers and children. We know, that the children are not our future, they are our present too. We pay attention on each child, each teenager. At the beginning of my ministry I made the disciples of the young guys and girls at age of 7-9, today they are 19-23, and we serve in the leadership team together.
We believe that as a church we will influence others by setting a life sample that showing the attention on the children. Then we will witness revival through young generation.
