Youth Worker

About 30% of Namibians are around 20 years old. After Namibia's Independence, young people began to leave their churches, and one big reason was that the youth programs offered were old-fashioned and unappealing to them. Their perceived hypocrisy in the daily lives of the older generation who preached God's Word but hadn't lived it out was another deterrent. So now the church is rapidly losing the young generation.
We envision a youth worker assisting churches in Namibia to find engaging ways to reach youth with the Gospel, and at the same time, training young people so that they will be able to take on the youth work in the future.
