Our Mission

"At YoungPreachers, we aim to provide young people with a platform to respond to their calling to preach, guiding them in developing their skills and ministry."


When is a person old enough to begin their ministry? At YoungPreachers, we believe that bodily age should be no barrier when it comes to preaching. Rather, spiritual age is what matters.

Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12, RSV)

In a time when many churches are lacking young people all together, we hardly ever hear of young people preaching. But why should that be?

And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh;
your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
your old men shall dream dreams,
and your young men shall see visions.
(Joel 2:28, RSV)

At YoungPreachers, people of all ages can witness the ministry of young people as they preach throughout the week.
