AOYC 2019

R E S O N A T E: to be filled with a deep and reverberating sound.

Psalm 98:7 - Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

Listen - can you hear it?

Every heart pulsing with life.

Every wave pounding against the shore.

Every stone resounding in stillness.

The sound echoes through the whole of creation (Psalm 19:1). All reverberating with the voice of a Creator who calls from the depth of the ocean to the edge of the universe (Isaiah 41:9).

He’s calling to you. His call resonates with the deepest places in you, because it was his voice that spoke you into being before the foundations of the Earth (Ephesians 1:4). Every breath that you take is an echo of this relentless love-call, this story that he’s telling.

At AOYC 2019, we’ll tune our lives to this frequency. We’ll echo the songs of supernovas and seashores, offering a relentless cry of “Holy, Holy!”. His heartbeat will reverberate through us - sending ripples of the rhythm of love and justice in action.

At this year’s AOYC from May 17-20, World Renew wants to “Make Hunger Disappear” and you can help! World Renew seeks to address the impacts of poverty, hunger, conflict and disasters worldwide. We advocate for the most vulnerable people, and we envision a world where everyone experiences God’s love and justice.

We are asking each person attending AOYC 2019 to:

  • Bring $10 to help feed Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh to end global hunger. Your $10 will become $50 through a 4:1 government agency match.


  • Bring 10 food items for The Food Bank of Waterloo Region to end local hunger. This is one way that we can honour the city that hosts the AOYC every year!
