South Ankole Diocese is honored to Organize and host the 7th Annual Youth Students and Children Convention that brings together youths and youth leaders from different parts of the country and abroad. The convention offers great opportunity for Prayer, Worship, Teaching and Networking; opportunity for youths and youthLeaders to learn from each other’s experiences explore and be equipped in ways of influencing their communities.
The SADAYSC 2020 theme is “My Father Is Working until Now, and I Am Working” John 5:17. We seek to build from the previous themes “Be careful how you walk” Ephesians 5:15. For 2013, “No Turning Back” Heb 10:39 for the year 2014, “Be an Example” 1Tim 4:12 for 2015, Faith without works is dead” James 2:17 for 2017, “Go and make disciples…” Matt.28:19-20 for 2018 and “Always remember what you have learnt” Prov. 4:13 for 2019. Salvation is a journey in which every believer must work and walk daily seeking to be Christlike because Jesus is the perfect role model.
Unfortunately our present Youth generation lives at a time of serious Identity Crisis, Provocative Media, unemployment and many contemporary issues that make it seem impossible to be a good example to others and. Through the conference the Lord seeks to remind participants that it’s Him that works in us to will and to do and therefore by his grace we will keep in the race irrespective of what comes our way the youth are to fix their eyes on Jesus so as to be good examples to the present generation and others to come. Halleluiah!
-God’s call to bear excellent and lasting fruits.
-Exploiting your talent as a Christian Youth.
-Jesus our model.
