Start your Brave Faith journey at NYMW!

By Dan Etheridge

Around the world, Christians face abuse, threats, violence, arrest, prison and even death because of their choice to follow Jesus. And many still choose to follow, knowing the risk. This is brave faith being lived out – the perspective that knowing Jesus is truly worth everything we have.

Safety. Money. Freedom. Reputation. Career. Friends. Even family. All this can be at stake, but brave faith chooses to keep focused on Jesus, knowing He is worth more than everything else.

Sign up to our Brave Faith journey and, over six weeks, we’ll introduce you to six Christians from around the world who are bravely living out their faith in Jesus. They have chosen Him to be front and centre, and in doing that have seen their lives changed and transformed.

Their stories are challenging and inspiring. They can encourage us to have greater passion and perseverance – showing us that taking risks and getting out of our comfort zones can deepen our relationship with God.

What’s involved?

If you sign up, we’ll give you out a Brave Faith journal that’ll get you started on a six-week journey into braver faith. All you need to do is to commit to spending 20-30 minutes each week working through:

  • One story
  • A linked Bible reflection
  • and some prayer points

Plus, through the week we’ve suggested two brave faith challenges (one aiming to connect you to your persecuted family and one aiming to grow your faith and push your boundaries).

And, on top of that, you can sign up to receive a special weekly email and text that will link to videos and audio discussions featuring other young people who have been on this journey of Brave Faith. Make sure you sign up when you get your journal (links are on the first few pages) to get encouragement and reminders to keep going!
