Bisiatabu District of the Central Papua Conference in Papua New Guinea hosted its first combined mini Adventist Youth Convention (AYC) at Iarowari Secondary School in Sogeri, September 22-25.

With the theme “Sanctify Me to Service”, the convention’s objective was to train more than 200 young leaders of Bisiatabu and Efogi districts in youth ministry. The guest speaker during the plenary and devotionals was the Conference’s general secretary, Pastor Rex Koi, who challenged the young people to allow themselves “to be set apart for a holy and sacred work”.

The special areas of interest covered by the facilitators included music, Revelation—hope, meaning and purpose, youth leadership, cross-cultural witnessing and media evangelism. Most plenary sessions were captured and distributed via livestream on the Bisiatabu district’s Facebook page. Internet streaming training was conducted as part of the event for the District’s communication team—and was received with much excitement. Conference youth director Pastor John Nebare commended the leadership of the District and looked forward to them growing from strength to strength.

The young people experienced a sense of personal revival and recommitted themselves to be sanctified by the truth and be a part of God’s last day movement. District youth coordinator Max Kidu and District director Pastor Miller Kuso expressed heartfelt appreciation to God for leading Bisiatabu and Efogi during the past year. “With the learnings from this inaugural AYC, we will grow on and host more meaningful conventions—training our youths to be disciple-makers,” Pastor Kuso reflected at the close of the mini AYC.
