QB15 is just about here!!! Get excited friends we are back at Keswick Christian Camp the home of QB and the best place in NZ to bring your teams for some training, fun and team building. I know that you will be inspired in your work with young people and that your leadership team will be totally impacted for the gospel.
This year we have two legends in youth ministry - the return of 'Marko' Mark Oestreicher from The Youth Cartel and Dr Duffy Robins - professor of youth ministry at Eastern University. The theme for QB15 is best described in 1 Corinthians 4:16 "Therefore I urge you to imitate me." The youth in NZ and the churches need leaders who can stand with God and say "imitate me as I imitate Christ". It is our prayer you will encounter God through the weekend in a way that renews your passion for him and for leadership.
QB15 is going to be an incredibly significant weekend and I personally look forward to seeing you in Rotorua
A mission-themed, short film competition for NZ Baptist youth groups
You have three minutes left to live. 180 seconds of life to somehow impact the world for God. What will your final mission be?
This is the challenge the NZ Baptist Missionary Society (NZBMS) and Baptist Youth Ministries (BYM) are sending out to youth groups across the country; make a short three minute film about what you would do for God if you discovered that was all the time you had left to live. We’re really looking forward to the stories you’re going to tell – how you would tackle a last, all important mission for God - so get your team together, get creative, and put together your own original short film!
The grand prize is pretty amazing. We will send two people from the winning team to Papua New Guinea we’re they’ll see some of the fantastic work NZBMS is involved in. They’ll be able to put their film making skills to good use by making a short film about what they see God doing in PNG!
All entries must be submitted by the 1st October
the best entries from each region will be played at Easter Camp.
