AUSTRALIAN YOUTH ON MISSIONS

AYM is a program that consists of young people from all across Australia traveling in teams to minister at a church over the weekend. It is designed to propel youth into their calling while being a blessing to local churches. 

Due to current restrictions across Australia, the AYM program will sadly not be running this year. We hope that we will be able to resume the program in 2022.
