Asian Ecumenical Youth Assembly, 6-13 April 2018

Asian Ecumenical Youth Assembly (AEYA), initiated by the Christian Conference Asia (CCA), provides a regional platform for young Christians in Asia to come together and reflect meaningfully as they journey together in search of the meaning and relevance of light and truth, especially in Asia’s pluralistic context.

The AEYA will be an opportunity for the participants to learn mutually from each other’s experiences, different cultures, and to develop a network of young Asian ecumenists to build-up and strengthen mutual recognition in solidarity.

6 - 13 April, 2018 Manado, Indonesia

Prospective participants, between the age of 20 and 35, are encouraged to apply with endorsement by respective member churches or councils. NCCA is a member council and nominations will be received to us as soon as possible.

CCA and local hosts will arrange board and lodging for all participants.

An invitation letter and registration form are attached for you to forward to suitable prospective participants to consider. CCA Secretariat is seeking indicative EOI by 15 February 2018.

The theme of the 2018 AEYA is a prayer, “Lord, send Your Light and Truth to lead us.”, which is based on the Biblical verse, Psalm 43:3.

The AEYA, in this context, will provide opportunities for young Asian Christians a common platform to:

  • Initiate a process of common search for light and truth amidst adverse realities in Asia;
  • Journey together in search of light and truth in Asia’s diverse contexts together with all God’s people in Asia;
  • Reaffirm their faith and to become part of God’s mission in prophetic witness;
  • Help recognize the need for a clear vision of society’s struggles at present times;
  • Understand and value each other’s norms and tradition from different contexts in Asia; Promote the harmonious relationship among the diversities in Asia while being engaged in a journey to seek light and truth;
  • Take inspirations from those who struggled and contributed for peace with justice in the household of God;
  • Help to rediscover their identity as young Christians in Asia’s multi-religious and pluralistic contexts.
