Nepal Youth Event

Late in June Expeditions International Mission under the auspices of Nepal AD2000 Movement held a meeting of about 50 youth leaders from around the valley to discuss the needs of the young people of Nepal. The need for revival and contextualization was brought up along with the need for unity. Out of this meeting a committee was formed to hold an event called Lift Jesus High, the committee consisted of 10 youth leaders from different churches around the valley. These leaders planned and organized this event to be held at the Birendra International Conference Hall in New Baneshwar near the Kathmandu airport. This hall had never a major Christian worship event held in it, they were expecting between 400-700 young people.

On July 26th, with all the leaders finishing final details between 1200-1400 young people crowded into a space built for 700 max. with the desire to lift Jesus high! Several youth teams from the States combined with church leaders and Miss Beautiful Nepal `98 to form a power packed 4 hours of worship and encouragement.

The 3 original objectives presented by EIM were

  1. Lift Jesus High
  2. Challenge the youth to take the gospel to their nation and beyond
  3. Equip them for the task by the power of the Holy Spirit.
These goals were achieved along with unexpected numbers and unprecedented cooperation between churches who truly care about "passing the torch" to the next generation, which happened to be the theme of HMCOWE `98. They are now looking to the next step of forming a consistent valley wide fellowship of leaders. The Lord is truly uniting and empowering his Body for the Kingdom's sake.
