The Journey
The Journey

Global NYI

No matter where we are in our walk with the lord, we are all on a journey - a journey where we experience god's grace seeking us, saving us, and sanctifying us. In john 14:6, Jesus states, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."

As NYI, we hope to encourage our youth to discover the ways god has been faithful in their own lives and invite others on this journey of grace found in and through Christ. Furthermore, we never have to journey alone. Though we all come from different cultures, backgrounds, and upbringings, we're all on the same journey to help each other be more Christlike.

Join us on the journey!

Third Wave

Global NYI

Third Wave has been created as a global forum to gather and develop emerging NYI leaders in a global context. As a leadership conference, it primarily consists of worship, fellowship, learning, service, leadership development, connection and prayer. This conference is geared towards emerging youth leaders in the Church of the Nazarene. Unlike other NYI events, this is not an open-registration event. Attendees will be selected by their Field leadership and there are limited spots available per field. The last Third Wave conference (2015) was held in India with 194 participants from 44 countries. Our District Presidents in Canada have agreed that this conference will be open to Ambrose Nazarene students primarily in ministry preparation.

January 7-12, 2025 in Florida, USA.
