Forever 2012

 

The games will be over and the medals put away… What will remain in the UK must be more than just memories and the Olympic village.

With an opportunity to reach out to the peoples and communities of the United Kingdom and also to touch the hearts and souls of the million-plus visitors from the nations coming to the UK for the Olympics, a project has been carried out for the last three years.

Forever is a team focused on taking advantage of these opportunities and on conveying the gospel of Jesus at the forthcoming Games. We are preparing to mobilise thousands of outreach teams from across the world to impact people in a fresh and exciting way. Our vision statement is “Using the 2012 Olympic Games as a catalyst to release teams across the UK demonstrating Christ through continuing outreach”.

We want to impact the United Kingdom in a fresh and powerful way.

As we partner with churches and other organisations to reach out to love the people of our nation, we want to see more people empowered into outreach.

We want to establish teams, before, during and after the 2012 Games, with a vision to continue to impact the communities Forever.  

In the midst of the Games we will be hosting and coordinating a massive outreach, involving thousands of YWAMers partnering with local churches to reach communities across the UK.

Making it happen

To see this vision fulfilled we want to see new teams released in London, and at least one new team in each of the other Olympic cities. The focus for these teams will be on evangelism and urban ministries, using new ways and fresh ideas to minister to the local community. 

We will continue to build on existing networks to draw churches and different organisations under the umbrella of More Than Gold, the organisation helping churches to engage with the 2012 Games.

We will aim to serve, train and equip the Church and connect our short-term teams with the long-term visions of local churches.

Through the YWAM international network, we are inviting tens of thousands of people from across the world to come to the UK during the Olympic season.

Our work will come to nothing without your support, though. Click here to find out how you can get involved.
