TeenStreet 2020 will be more exciting than ever before. We will not be in Oldenburg this year, but this TeenStreet will see the start of a new year-long international community that connects you to Jesus and to both Jesus followers from around the world as well as from your own area.
“It was such a beautiful moment,” Gabi recalls. “We were all together; my father was playing the guitar and I started singing from my heart to God. We knew the darkness was over and that everything would be okay.”
It is not easy to describe TeenStreet (TS) to someone who hasn’t experienced it, and even those who keep coming back to TS might find it hard to grasp. Is it even possible to comprehend how big it is? Maybe not, but we would like to help you get the picture.
For the last ten years, youth leaders in a Swedish church have been training teens to serve local people and churches around the world. This is the second part of the story about how TeenStreet became an inspiration to develop a fruitful youth programme equipping young people in missional discipleship for Christian leadership and missions.
Did you know that the organisation sending the biggest group to TeenStreet (TS) is a church in Sweden? This is the first part of the story about how TS became an inspiration to develop a fruitful youth programme in their church.
From about a hundred teens attending dance workshops every day to the heart-pounding, energetic dance parties every night, dance is without question one of the languages spoken at TeenStreet. Beginning with “Don’t build your house on sand” on Day 1, the dance team has wowed us with their moves daily, telling a heartfelt story each time.
We are meant to get involved in ministry because other people need to know about His love, too. From a duckling to a garbage can drum, the speakers had powerful examples of the 'why' and 'how' of this call.
Day 1's Main Hall session focused on wisdom, a word and concept used very much in everyday life. The truth is that God gives us wisdom, and He invites us to desire and search for it as we would search for treasure.
From deep base notes echoing through the speaker system, to the countries welcome video, to moments of voices lifted up in praise, the first Throne Room session of TeenStreet 2019 made a powerful impact on the participants.
Equip Day is a special time to encourage the Service Team to be part of God's mission. Taking the time to prepare before the teens arrive is proving to be a valuable addition to the annual TeenStreet schedule.
Service Team members share why they enjoy being onsite during Setup Week, when the vision of TeenStreet becomes a reality for them, and what part of the upcoming conference they are most excited for. For those who are here, Setup Week is part of the whole TeenStreet experience.
