Baptist Youth Ministries supports and resources our local Baptist churches across NSW and ACT in their ministry with youth and young adults.
The NSW & ACT Baptist Association exists to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word, deed and sign, through interdependent partnerships.
Our approach is to not only to connect with the leadership of youth and young adult ministries but also to connect our local youth and young adult ministries together.
Our priority is to know what’s happening on the ground in our churches and come alongside those in leadership.

As part of the Baptist Association of Churches in NSW and ACT, we use the Core 5 in approach to ministry:
Christ Centered – Whenever we gather, whether it be to catch up with one another, for training or at larger combined events, we are focused on Jesus: His life, His death and His resurrection. We don’t want to simply come up with good ideas or fun activities, we want to be transformed by the person and work of Christ.
Mission Shaped – We believe God is alive and active in the world and want to join Him in His mission to restore people to Himself. We believe the local church in paramount in this and that teenagers and young adults need to be inspired, challenged and equipped to participate with God in His mission.
People Empowering – We live in a world where individualism and consumerism dictate a lot of behaviour. That being said, we believe the message of the Bible is one that calls us to live for others. Teens and young adults have much to contribute to the church and society.
Relationally Committed – We were created for relationship – relationship with God and relationship with others. We know that connections between youth and young adult pastors is critical for healthy young and young adult ministries and as such we prioritise meeting together for mutual encouragement and resource sharing.
Partnership Orientated – We proactively seek to work with like-minded organisations to provide helpful resources and training.
