The Pre-Assembly Youth Conference invites all youth delegates and stewards to the LWF Twelfth Assembly to come together and become strong, informed and inspired representatives of their generation at the Assembly.

Some 75 youth delegates and 25 stewards will meet in the north Namibia town of Ondangwa from May 3 to 9.

The program is designed to allow delegates and stewards to:

  • learn from each other’s church and society
  • prepare content and skills to enable them to take part fully at the Assembly
  • get to know the Namibian host church and youth work

Elements of the agenda:

  • learn from outcomes of the Global Young Reformers Network (regional themes, Workshop Wittenberg, Living Reformation projects)
  • learn from LWF youth work and youth participation 2010-2017
  • train in Assembly procedures
  • carry out preparation for the Assembly themes
  • agree on major directions
  • develop LWF youth message and youth presentations to the Assembly
  • visit congregations and youth work in north Namibia
  • have fun on Safari Day
