The Netherlands

17-23 September 2020



Every time the Youth for Christ family gathers it is a very special occasion. Being with like-minded brothers and sisters from around the world who share a common commitment to our vision of reaching every young person and giving them the opportunity to be a follower of Jesus is a tremendously uplifting experience.

There is something extra special about General Assembly. While it is essential that we gather together to work through the most important matters of our ministry, we also gain innovative training, time together in the Word, opportunities to share & exchange ministry ideas, encouragement, affirmation, laughter, challenge, prayer, celebration, rest, renewal, and time with our ministry family. There is no substitute for GA!

The YFC International Service Centre is honoured to host General Assembly 2020 in The Netherlands on 17-23 September 2020. General Assembly is a chance for YFC International to GO together to further the vision of “every young person, every nation.” It’s the place for national directors, board members, staff persons, volunteers, and young leaders to receive training, investment and encouragement to GO into their own nations. As an organization of 120+ nations worldwide, GA will provide an opportunity to focus on how we GO together to be better equipped as positive, influential and effective workers through innovative curriculum, workshops, and training sessions.

We look forward to GA2020 at a beautiful conference centre about 200km northeast of Amsterdam. Please make attendance at GA 2020 a high priority . . . not only for what you will gain by being there but for the blessing your presence will be to the rest of the Youth for Christ family. WE NEED EACH OTHER!

Looking forward to seeing you at GA2020!

The Youth for Christ General Assembly is for the staff, board members, volunteers and alumni of Youth for Christ, along with their spouses, special invited guests and supporters. It is not an open conference. Please contact your national office regarding eligibility for participation in the General Assembly.


Dear YFC International Family,
I am delighted to announce that, Lord willing, we will be having our next General Assembly in the Netherlands in September of 2020. This will be a very special time as the global family comes together to pray, learn, listen to what the Holy Spirit will say to us, and encourage one another to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel”. The conference will contain a Young Leader track, praying and discerning the way forward, and spending time together as family. Please mark it in your calendar now: 17-23 September 2020 . We have checked and there are no hurricanes recorded in September in the Netherlands! 🙂 We will value your prayers as we assemble a GA 2020 Team from around the world, establish a theme, invite speakers, plan training tracks and unveil a new and improved business meeting. May you be encouraged today as you boldly love and serve the youth of your nation in Jesus’ name.
Looking forward to being together at GA 2020!

For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I will be right there among them.” Matthew 18:20 TLB


We are very happy and grateful that we, as Youth for Christ in the Netherlands, can be your host for GA 2020. We feel privileged to welcome so many young leaders and colleagues from all over the world to the Netherlands in 2020. The ministry of Youth for Christ in the Netherlands has been going on for more than 70 years and still today young people in our country are reached by our mission to spread the love of Jesus Christ. We would love to celebrate this testimony with you and encourage you to keep sharing your life with young people.
The Netherlands is one of the smallest countries in Europe in terms of surface area, but we are not ashamed of that at all because our mission is great.
We hope that you will discover something of our rich culture and history and the position that the Netherlands has in Europe, a continent where much is built on what Christians have brought and done here. In that tradition, we stand and want to live out our faith!
We look forward to the coming period to work with our colleagues to realize a conference that will have a long-lasting impact and one that will give God’s Spirit every opportunity to encourage and challenge us!
We look forward to welcoming you to the Netherlands for GA 2020!


The 2020 General Assembly will be held at a beautiful conference center about 200km northeast of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
