JOIN THE MOVEMENT (Asia, Africa, Latin America)

Alongsiders International does not set up a new organization in each country. Instead we partner with church networks or denominations in the Non-western world to train youth in interested churches.

Through these partnerships, thousands of Christian youth are being equipped to make disciples and minister in their own communities, vulnerable children are being mentored, children and their extended families are joining the church, and communities are being transformed. Young leaders are being formed.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE RESOURCES WE USE...

COURSE-WORK & RESOURCES FOR TRAINING

COURSE-WORK & RESOURCES FOR TRAINING

3-year Curriculum

Over the course of 9 modules (27 lessons) participants learn about God's love, salvation, forgiveness and love for the poor. They learn about justice, prayer, freedom from fear, and reconciliation. They learn to deal with the challenges of drugs, pornography and gangs. And they learn essential skills for life such as stewardship, goal-setting and leadership. And of course, much more.

All these Biblical lessons are presented in a fun, visual, story-based (comic book) format - which is not only for the mentor, but also for their "little brother or sister".

ORIENTATION MATERIALS & FOLLOW UP SYSTEMS

ORIENTATION MATERIALS & FOLLOW UP SYSTEMS

Orientation Pack

Alongsiders International develops contextualized mobilization, training and follow up resources for each country movement - in the appropriate local language.

Because many of the young people we work with have limited literacy, we use local artists to create flipcharts and artwork to communicate the training material.

Through these simple, yet effective materials, local leaders are easily trained to share the vision and help equip local Christian youth.

STAFF SUPPORT & ONGOING ENCOURAGEMENT

STAFF SUPPORT & ONGOING ENCOURAGEMENT

Ongoing Support

Alongsiders International has developed comprehensive systems and structures to help a church network establish and grow a discipleship movement through their church youth groups.

Sometimes, the most helpful thing is to sit down face to face and learn. Or visit another country where the movement is thriving. At other times, all that is needed is an email, Skype or phonecall.

Our commitment to you is to be there when you need us. To walk alongside as long as you want us: providing staff and volunteer leader training, advice and resources.
