This year’s AYTI will equip young people to be leaders for mission in their congregations and communities. Participants will become skilled peer ministers, cross-cultural advocates, and community organizers. They will wrestle with the theory and theology of local missions as accompaniment in Jesus’ name. This experience will empower participants to challenge and lead their congregations into their neighborhoods for the common good.
