Teenstreet: a congress for young people – but not just for them!

Teenstreet: a congress for young people – but not just for them!

From July 28th to August 4th, 3,271 participants (including 1,832 teenagers), came together in Germany for the Teenstreet conference organised by OM. Jean-Crépin, who is 40, shares what it was like.

Thanks to a grant from my church, five of us were able to take part in the conference; one teenager, three volunteers and myself as a coach. I was responsible for a group of seven teenagers aged between 16 and 17. Two of them had not yet taken the decision to invite Jesus into their lives. The most memorable part of the conference was when these two young people were converted. I would really urge everybody, whatever their age, to participate in Teenstreet. Not only are there on offer a wide range of themes, activities, teaching and games of excellent quality and perfectly adapted for 13 to 17 year olds, but older folk can also take part in the congress, carrying out various tasks to do with organisation. So, at Teenstreet every age bracket can come and hear God speak, as well as serve others.

I’ve stayed in touch with the teenagers in my group since the summer, in order to encourage them in their Christian walk. I can’t wait to meet up again with all the youngsters from my group at Teencity (take a look at the presentation below). I’m looking forward, too, to seeing young people invite Jesus into their lives, and take decisions for Him. I’m impatient as well to see God take me on in my Christian walk through all that I will experience during this weekend.
