Young Lions

For nearly 20 years, Young Lions has been instrumental in developing the next generations of AoG leaders.

Featuring a unique mixture of ministry, teaching, coaching groups & practical challenges, it is a weekend that produces incredible results in the lives of the delegates & coaches. Our Nation needs young leaders who know God, know themselves, and are equipped to further His Kingdom wherever they are.

Our Nation needs Young Lions.

Young Lions 2021 will be held in two locations; two weekends in England & Wales and one weekend in Scotland!

Young Lions FAQs

What’s Young Lions all about?

We believe that the church needs to have a ‘wave after wave’ approach to developing leaders; understanding that the second we stop investing in those coming after us, we’re a generation from dying out! Young Lions plays a part in that, exposing young people to what leadership is, that there is a call on all of us to lead where we are, and to take responsibility to shape ourselves into the image of Christ.

How long has Young Lions been running?

Young Lions 2020 will be the 18th year that it has run! Over these years, we have seen hundreds of young people discover the call of God for their life and be released into leading in all areas of life! We have Young Lions who are leading & planting Churches, raising families, actors, sports men & women, and loads more!

Who is Young Lions for?

You can start the first year of Young Lions between the age of 16-19. Young Lions is for those who have found Christ and are beginning their journey of leadership. We don’t just want polished ‘got it together’ kids if they love Jesus and there’s just a chance they could do incredible things for Him, send them! To coach, you must be a youth pastor/leader who has either graduated Young Lions or has good experience working with young people.

What should I expect at the weekend?

The Young Lions weekend is not your typical youth weekend away. It’s a unique training, development and assessment boot-camp! Positive peer pressure and the power of an unfamiliar environment will put delegates through their paces and in to situations that will force them to draw on the skills and abilities that they have.

The weekend is loaded with teaching sessions, encounter sessions, smaller coaching group sessions and a physical session. Every element has been designed and honed over the years to provide the most impact a weekend can offer!

On arrival, delegates will be split into small groups and assigned a coach for the weekend. Coaches are either graduates of Young Lions, or Youth Pastors & leaders attending with their young people. The role of the coach is to accompany the delegates through the weekend, and also to complete an assessment form at the end to be sent back to the delegate’s Church. This is an awesome discipleship tool for their leaders.

Young Lions is 3 weekends over 3 years; each year containing different elements of the leadership journey.
