Regional Reps, National Reps – and networking

Godtalk Reps exist to help youth leaders network so they apply themselves to the mission Jesus gave them TOGETHER – because this brings a different level of results! This includes:

(1) Facilitating and supporting the networking of youth leaders in each place – so they can work together where they are

(2) Promoting intentionality in equipping youth to reach youth – and school groups

(3) Helping facilitate outreach event ideas that could happen in numerous place (sometimes simply by connecting people together, so they do something together). We think the Godtalk Talent Quest idea will take off soon too! (Godtalk.nz/talent)

(4) Regional Reps attend about 8 online meetings annually to share ideas – so everyone wins!

We can change the face of NZ youth ministry together 

Networks have broken down. They need to be non-denominational, because facilitating united outreach in each place is the goal. If key youth leaders will give themselves to the mission Jesus gave them – which is to their city and town, not just their own youth group, TOGETHER national change is possible!

Youth can outreach by themselves – if we release them with vision and support

Dave tells the story of an effort he was involved with that got student-led group going in 90% of the schools in a city of 4 million people – without any group existing ‘officially’. They were all student led. They prayed. They asked God for ideas – and they did what they felt led to do. Hundreds came to faith in the youth ministries that worked together in this.

Seeing the city – not just one group

What we’re missing is leadership at the city level. If we only run our own groups, things like school groups get overlooked. If we can learn to ‘see the city’ – while gaining insight from people who already do this (like some of the Godtalk reps), things are possible that we’d never achieve together!  Jesus prayed for a united church for a reason!
