The Youthworks story fits within the greater narrative of God’s redemptive work and the mission our Lord Jesus entrusted to his disciples: to make disciples of all nations.
This is why we exist.
From SRE to our Christian Outdoor Education programs, and from specialised ministry training and biblical publications to Year 13: the discipleship of children, youth and families is at the heart of everything we do.
This is both our promise and our story.
That no matter where you connect with us, you can be confident that our ministries will lead, teach, model, encourage, train and resource young people to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. And we do this in service of churches, schools, families and individuals in partnership together to help orient the next generation for life.

Ministry Support and Training
Our Ministry Support Team equip and assist those in front-line youth and children’s ministry in churches and schools.
Youthworks is the authorised SRE curriculum provider for the Sydney Anglican Diocese, and is also responsible for the training and accreditation of SRE teachers.
Youthworks College is Australia’s only theological college that specialises in youth and children’s ministry. Students can also study online through the Timothy Partnership.
The Year 13 program offers a discipleship gap-year program for school leavers, helping them change the world for Christ whatever walk of life they choose.
Through our Publications team, we seek to equip people for ministry to children, youth and families, through the provision of Christian resources, including commentaries, CDs and DVDs, targeted websites and online material, Bible studies, and other books.
Christian Outdoor Education
Youthworks offers a thoroughly integrated Christian Outdoor Education experience to schools through our Horizon programs, as well as other options to suit your school’s outdoor education needs.
By God’s grace, and the generosity of many of his people, Youthworks owns and runs 3 major Outdoor Conference Centres – Port Hacking, Shoalhaven and Blue Gum Lodge in the Blue Mountains – where thousands of people every year can relax and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation together.
Youthworks also runs several holiday and HSC Study camps at our conference centres throughout the year.
