In the beginning...
AYC launched in 2006, on a university campus in Melbourne, Australia.
A small group of university students desired to deepen their personal relationship with Jesus and encourage others who were also seeking personal revival and greater involvement in ministry.
Since then, AYC has grown into a movement, providing annual conferences and events attended by hundreds of youth from across Australia and the world.
We are a generation who desire to be counter-culture.
We are a grassroots movement of all professions, and all identities.
We are passionate about sharing our faith, excited to rise up to finish the work.
We believe now is a high time to rise up as ambassadors for Him.
We are frustrated by injustice and inequalities, and desire to do all we can to be the difference this world and society need.
AYC is more than a conference, more than an event, more than a social gathering.
AYC is a movement, driven by the desire to be who we are called to be - world changers for Jesus.
This is AYC.
To those who relentlessly desire something more, tirelessly searching for who they are and what their calling is.
To those who are weary, tired and daunted by the journey, and yet are relentlessly holding on to hope, grasping for that distant beacon amongst the fog.
To those who faithfully light the lanterns in the night, spreading their burning luminance to the ends of the earth.
AYC is for you.
This, is AYC.
