THE BEGINNINGS IN AUSTRALIA

The seeds of Jesus Youth movement in Australia were sowed in the year 2004 when a few Jesus Youth migrated to Australia for their career prospects. After a time of prayer, discussions, sharing and networking, the first Jesus Youth meeting in Australia was conducted on the 18th of July 2004 in Dandenong, Melbourne. In the initial phase of the movement, night vigils and fellowship gatherings were organised frequently at St. Gerard’s Catholic Church, Dandenong. In 2005, the movement rose to a new horizon with the support and encouragement of Archbishop Christopher C Prowse DD STD and many reverend priests and leaders in the movement. Many youth were drawn to the movement as they found a friendly approach to committing to Christ and a style that was simple yet vibrant. The following years witnessed the starting up of Jesus Youth groups in different parts of Australia – Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin & Canberra which led to the establishment of a national movement with a clear vision and purpose. In 2014 Jesus Youth Australia celebrates its 10 years in Australia.
