Who Are We?
Baptist Youth Ministries exists to support and resources the Youth and Young Adult Ministries of Baptist Churches in NSW and ACT. We do this through connecting with pastors and leaders, facilitating networks of practice, and proving collaborative experiences and training.
The NSW & ACT Baptist Association is a movement of more than 340 congregations committed to voluntarily serving together with a common purpose, values, vision and goal. More than 43,000 people make up the Baptist family across the state and the nation’s capital. The Baptist movement of churches is the largest Protestant movement in the world.
By working together our movement of churches inspires greater accountability of ministry leaders, harnesses a greater potential to impact the world around us and provides a more professional and influential response to key issues that affect Baptist churches and our community.
This combined expression also allows for support and development services to be accessed by all member churches, church leaders and attendees. Our belief is that we can have a greater positive impact on the world around us when we partner together.

What is State Youth Camp?
Described as a camp within a camp, SYC is designed so that Youth Pastors & Youth Leaders can spend maximum time with their Youth Groups, and don’t have to concern themselves with the details of duties such as organising Catering, Activities, Workshops, Program etc. that come from organising their own own Youth Camp.
SYC brings youth groups together for an amazing shared experience with God, with 3 nights of camping, activities, worship, prayer, teaching and relationship building!

What is NEXT?
NEXT is designed to support and equip leaders in our Baptist churches across NSW and ACT.
NEXT is an intentional time focused on building relationships with pastors and leaders, fostering community and connection with like minded people, praying with and for one another, sharing of ideas and resources, inspiration, refreshment, and ultimately being reminded of who we are and who we serve.
It’s about calling leaders and emerging leaders up to all that God wants for and from us for the year ahead and into the future.
Over the years this event has grown to be one of most significant ways that we invest in the younger leaders in our Baptist Association in NSW and ACT.
