WHO ARE WE
Baptists have been passionate about seeing the youth of New Zealand come to Christ since 1890. A deep legacy has been created over the decades with the establishment of Easter Camps, leadership training and investments by Baptist churches in Youth Pastors, Key Leaders and youth programs. Today, Baptist Youth Ministries (BYM) continues to invest in local Baptist churches in New Zealand—to see young people come Christ and to develop leaders who can relate to and build relationships with young people.
BYM is one of the largest youth ministry networks in New Zealand; we have over 2,000 passionate people (paid and volunteer) involved in youth leadership, serving 20,000+ young people of intermediate age, high school age, and young adult age (18-25) throughout New Zealand every week.
