International Anglican Youth Network /Resources
Welcome to Buenas Nuevas, the journal of the International Anglican Youth Network. This journal is for all who are interested in or have a responsibility for youth ministry, including: bishops, members of ACC, youth workers at every level (provincial, diocesan and local), and all youth leaders.
Through the articles included from around the Communion we hope to resource youth leaders and inspire people working in youth ministry. We trust they will broaden their experience of youth ministry in the Communion. We hope these articles will educate the church about evangelism with young people and its importance in the formation of Christian leaders and vocational discernment.
We hope you enjoy reading this first edition of Buenas Nuevas (below) and are inspired by what is happening among young people around our Communion.
A second issue of Buenas Nuevas is due out during 201,1offering a chance for young people and youth leaders to tell their stories of the Bible and its place in their lives.
Also included below is the study guide and resource for action entitled "Ending Violence Against Young Women and Girls" created by the Steering Group of the IAYN. The preamble explains the works connection with the UN Year of Youth (August 2010 - August 2011) and the connections being made with other official Networks of the ACC. We commend it to you for reflection and dissemination.
