Develop Youth Leaders


“There are many issues affecting youths in society. They need space where they can articulate concerns that matter to them. They need to know that they can make a difference in society.”

According to the General Secretary of the Council of Churches of Malaysia (CCM), the above will form the basis of an anticipated gathering of Christian youths from different churches discussing the role of youth.

“Discovering Rights and Responsibilities; Covenanting for Change”

The theme of the Forum will be “Discovering Rights and Responsibilities; Covenanting for Change”.

It will be held from 9-11 March 2007 at the YMCA Kuala Lumpur.

Ms Chrisanne Chin, who is Chairperson of the CCM Youth Network, explained that the programmes planned are intended to introduce youths to concerns that are close to their hearts. “By bringing youths from different churches together, we hope to foster friendship and discover new ways of impacting society as ecumenical youth,” Ms Chrisanne explained.

Many resourceful persons representing various NGOs will be participating. Among them are from SUARAM, PETPOSITIVE, Beautiful Gate, P.S. the Children, etc.

The organizers have appealed for early registration to make sure that interested youths will have a place at the forthcoming Forum.
