Year programme

Grow . Serve . Multiply

The Year Programme ‚Äď grow. serve. multiply.¬†¬†is a training programme for young adults who¬†want to devote a year to being shaped and inspired to become the person God has made them to be.

By the time the programme ends, you will have practical Kingdom experience and will be living out your faith, spreading the Good News, and strengthening those around you. You will have the tools to mirror this in the future - wherever you may go next!

In the process, you'll make life-long friends, have loads of fun, experience life in Belgium, and eat a lot of fries and chocolate.
