In January this year 21 Australians travelled across to the North Kigezi Diocese in South Western Uganda including Simon and Erin, Matthew and Lyndy.
The team went across to run the “Nextgen” conference. The Nextgen conference is a youth leadership conference that aims to equip youth leaders with skills to teach the bible in their local settings. One of the great strengths of the Nextgen conference is that it teaches a model that can be used on any bible passage.
Our team that went across said that a constant highlight of the conference was hearing the talks and bible studies that were prepared using the five stage model.
Simon reported that Johnson, one of the delegates, said with one of the biggest smiles he’d seen, that “he looked forward to going back to his parish and leading bible studies with much deeper questions”.
Previously, he said, his studies were ‘very shallow’.
On top of the conference, we were able to run a clergy marriage enrichment course and were able to be involved with Sunday Services.
