What is The Engage Initiative?

The Engage initiative is designed to raise up ordinary members from your congregation to begin and carry on the important work of passing on the faith to young people. 

Participants need to be adults of your congregation that you identify as godly individuals who live a life worthy of imitation (1 Corinthians 11:1) and love and trust the scriptures (1 Timothy 4:16).

What is the ENGAGE Method?




Many adults are capable of helping young people to follow Christ but just need some encouragement and basic training in order to get started. Engage works around the simple idea of equipping older Christians to meet regularly with one or more young

people to:

  • Talk with them to get to know them and discuss matters of faith
  • Study the Bible
  • Pray together

This is a simple method of engaging young people in the faith. Yet for many, this kind of ministry has never been modeled for us, so starting out can be a little intimidating. Engage will help equip ordinary members of congregations through a weekend of



Young Anglican Project trainers will teach participants how to choose a young person to ENGAGE with, how to make the initial approach, and how to study the Bible together with that young person.


In addition, during the training participants will be matched with coaches who will provide ongoing support and encouragement in the important role of building the Christian faith of young people.
