Big Lessons in Small Matters

Just one day into the start of our nation’s Circuit Breaker (CB), SYFC staff had to attend a one-hour compulsory introduction and training to operate Zoom. At that point, none of us envisaged how significant that training would turn out to be. 
Our younger staff took to Zoom very quickly. Older staff like me had…

Introducing: A Younger Leader: Laurent

When and how did you come into SYFC full-time? 
I came in at 35, in 2015. When considering this step, I read ‘The SYFC Story’, our memoir of 50 years of history. Her ethos in reaching youths resonated with me and I knew instantly this was the right choice for me.

All Hands on Deck

1 Corinthians 12 uses the metaphor of a body to show how every Christian is an essential part of the church. All Christians in the church make up the body of Christ (vs 27). Just as Christ cannot be divided (vs 12), no Christian can be sidelined in the church. Everyone is needed if the…

In the church or the body of Christ, each believer plays a different role. Every part is important, and no part is more important than the other. This is a truth we hold fast to in SYFC and we actively seek to work with our other ‘parts of the body’ to reach young people for…

Use Technology Wisely

Ephesians 5:15-16 sum up the call for Christians to live wisely in the world. To be wise is “to discern what is pleasing to the Lord,” sounded out earlier in verse 9. Nothing pleases the Lord more than that we love him and love others (Mark 12:29-31). But the world does not make it easy…

Geared to
 the Times,
 to the Rock:
What does 
it mean for
 SYFC today?

It can be difficult to accept or adapt to change simply because we do not like our boats to be rocked. However, with rapid leaps in technology that massively change the way we communicate, we need to understand our times and stay relevant to today’s youth.
