Group picture of the 10th Youth in Mission Congress

Called to grow

Almost three months have already passed since the last Youth in Mission Congress took place. With more than 2000 attendees and about the same number of additional guests on sabbath, this 10th Youth in Mission Congress has been the largest one we were privileged to experience. We were able to experience God's guidance in a special way and to come closer to Him – through sermons and devotions, workshops, music, prayer and much more.

Komm mit (come with me) – I commit.
We are not only called to point other people to Jesus' unending love, but are ourselves also encouraged to continually grow in faith, knowledge, and love. "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen." 2 Peter 3:18 (NKJV)
In Philippians 1:9-11, we find that same principle of growth, which reveals itself through love: "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God." (NKJV)
It is God's desire for each one of us to constantly grow. With Him at our side we will not have to fear anything. After all, it is the king of kings, who is with us.
