In 2006, a group of young Adventists in Australia launched the very first AYC. Their goal was to inspire and network a generation of passionate, self-sacrificing and mission-minded workers for Christ. Since then, there has been, year on year, iterations of conferences and workshops in different cities around Australia, Asia and the world.
Hundreds of youth have given their time in full-time Bible work or ministry with the hope of hastening Jesus’ return.
But the question remains, where are these youth today?
What is the next step after AYC?
What is beyond AYC?
We are calling all AYC alumni, professionals and young families to gather for a special time of revival, networking, and action.
Guest presenters include Justin Kim and others.
Saturday, 27 January:
Sabbath Morning - Combined with AYC (Sabbath school + Divine Service)
Lunch (AYC Beyond networking time)
Sabbath Afternoon - AYC Beyond Session 1 + Q&A Session

Sunday, 28 January:

Registering for an AYC Beyond ticket provides access to only these sessions. These sessions are not open to regular AYC attendees.
We have a limited number of spaces available, and priority will be given to those who have previously attended AYC.
AYC Beyond is a the next stage of service movement for our inspired young people. The journey after AYC may have been narrow or wavey. Some may have moved to new areas of the world, or into new areas of service.
There may have been highs or lows in the path after that mountain-top experience.
But wherever we now are, God’s calling still remains.
And He is still asking us to serve where we can, be a shining light for Him and inspire those around us.
We are planning to launch AYC Beyond at AYC 2024. With the help of the invited speakers and members of previous AYCs, we hope to use their experiences, knowledge and guidance to provide the networking platform to shape the “beyond group” of the army of God.
Over a two day launch event at AYC 2024, a special program aims to network and connect Beyond delegates.
We specifically appeal to past AYC delegates who have felt God’s fire and want to build on their service. God needs both the young and the experienced to do His work, and He call us wherever we are to turn back to Him. There is always room for those who are willing to be part of his service.
Concurrently with the AYC program, but only Sabbath and Sunday, AYC Beyond delegates will have two exclusive sessions, a Q&A session and exclusive networking opportunities over meal times, bring the Beyond delegates together.
These will be only for the AYC Beyond delegates, and will have specific time with AYC keynote speakers.
These workshop have been timed and planned with the needs of AYC Beyond delegates in mind.
Please register right here! Note that we will prioritise and be specifically approaching prior AYC delegates for the AYC Beyond event.
Yes you can, and you can attend both AYC 2023 conference events AND the AYC Beyond events. However, you will have to register (and provide payment) as an AYC delegate, and fulfil the criteria to be a AYC Beyond delegate.
We are not planning a virtual option at this stage, but we hope to do so if there is enough interest. If you cannot attend in person and want to explore a virtual option, please reach out to us via the Contact Us page
