BYE Teams 2023

BYE (Baptist Youth Evangelism) Teams are all about helping young people grow in their love of evangelism. Each Summer, Baptist Youth send a number of teams (of 6-12 young people) to assist a local church in their evangelistic ministries.

Over the past number of decades, thousands of young people have had the opportunity to connect with local Baptist church’s and assist them in their disciple making. As a result, we have the joy of hearing how young people grow radically in their love and understanding of Christ.

Whether its running holiday Bible clubs, distributing literature or organising events for local young people, BYE teams are a fantastic opportunity to engage in outreach, work in community and learn more about the local church. 

So, do you have a love for Christ? Do you desire to follow Jesus’ command of making disciples? Do you want to work in a team environment and have your faith strengthened this Summer? Then make sure you apply for one of our BYE team options.

Please Note: The specific nature of each team (activities, length, etc) may vary dependent upon restrictions at the time. Indicated below is the maximum length of time each team will be. Cost of team will vary accordingly.

Important Information

Baptist Youth have been running Teams for Young people for the past 30 years. Our desire is that they would leave each team with new friends and great memories. However, our ultimate prayer is that young people would, whilst growing in their personal faith, have the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with others.

Baptist Youth teams are led by volunteers from all walks of life. The one thing that unites each of our volunteers, however, is that they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. A rigorous process of application in line with BY’s child protection policy is undertaken for all our team leaders (copies of the policy are available by contacting Baptist Youth).

Baptist Youth, as a department of the Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland, have an insurance policy which covers Employers Liability and Public Liability. The Association will arrange a travel and personal accident policy to cover those travelling outside of Northern Ireland. However, all those taking part in teams are advised to consider additional insurance for themselves.

Sometimes photographs and video taken on Baptist Youth Camps are used in publicity materials or used on the Baptist Youth Social Media account (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). If you have an objection to photographs and/or video of your child being used for such purposes, please inform the Youth Director (Matthew Campbell) in writing by 23 June 2023

We desire to make BYE Teams the best possible experience for both the church and team members. It is a requirement that each team consists of committed Christians who have an active relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, to maximise the experience of team members, we desire that each team consists of young people from a range of churches and friendship groups. BYE team leaders, in liaison with the Youth Director, may encourage applicants to consider alternative BYE team options should the dynamic and purposes of the team require as such.
