Vision

The Younger Leadership College exists to equip, resource and commission 1000 younger leaders between 15-30 by 2023, to fulfil their God-given calling as leaders and disciples in culture and in the church.

The Younger Leadership College stands at the heart of the Diocese’s commitment to Growing Wider, Younger and Deeper, and through its activities has a vision to:

1

To see a substantial increase in the number of younger Christian leaders (under 30), serving in Worshipping Communities across the diocese in core areas of ministry (lay and ordained): including strategic leadership in mission, evangelism, preaching, leading worship, spiritual formation, ministry of prayer and intercession, compassionate action and social transformation.

2

To shape the mission of the whole church through the engagement of younger Christian leaders who are passionate about their faith in Christ, spiritually nourished through daily prayer, and theologically articulate, having a clear and compelling Christian world-view that inspires them to make a distinctive contribution in shaping culture and transforming society.

3

To see younger Christian leaders connected to one another in on-line learning communities focused on discipleship, as well as being nourished through networks that support sustainable patterns of daily prayer.

Disciples across the Diocese understand what it means to be a whole-life follower of Jesus and have a rich, dynamic relationship with Him.

Every day, they embody Kingdom leadership in their frontline contexts: workplaces, families, churches, communities and cultures are being transformed.


The YLC resources and equips these leaders, who enrich the mission of their their local churches; which in turn commission and sustain them wherever they are.


They bear much fruit, to the Father’s glory.
