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.
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!
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.

Every Young Lions delegate must start from 1st year, the experience is incomplete without it!
All leaders involved in making Young Lions happen are DBS checked and recommended by their home Church. Activities are risk-assessed and supervised, and appointed first-aiders are on site at all times. The outdoor physical does involve some physical activity, but nothing that could put someone at risk.
