RESOURCED! is all about Resources. Resources for youth leaders. Resources that engage young people. Resources that build strong, vibrant Christ-centred youth ministries.
“to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,” Ephesians 4:12
Tried and True
By “all about resources” we mean just that. No blogs, no news, no articles – just practical resources that you can use NOW to engage and develop young people! And they’re all field tested. They have been used with real live young people in real live Anglican youth groups and they have worked. They’re resources that can you can trust will be effective within our kiwi context and Anglican tradition. Tried and true – that’s our motto!
Contributions are welcome

“The one who sows generously will also reap generously.You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity; for the rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to God.” 2 Corinthians 9:7-12
