Global Youth Outreach
The Global Youth Outreach (GYO) was held at Cuneta Astrodome on October 30th, 31st, and November 1st, followed by the Day of Compassion on November 4th.
The youth who gathered focused on who God is, how worthy He is, our response to His holiness and the GO mandate. There was a deep hunger for God and many were met by the Holy Spirit. The conference centred on the presence and person of Jesus. Through worship times, testimonies, anointed speakers and more, God did a deep, transforming work.
The first day focused on God’s worthiness. Vibrant worship was accompanied by teaching that brought clarity as to why we serve Jesus – not for what we can get out of it, but because He is worthy of our devotion, our obedience, and our life.
The second day revolved around holiness and the Father. Speakers shared on the importance of heart purity, repentance and forgiveness. Powerful application times saw people repent of sins and forgive those who had hurt them. In the evening, Peter Brownhill spoke on the Fatherhood of God. This life changing message was followed by deep and intimate ministry, where hundreds were met by God in relation to trauma, emotional wounding, and areas of understanding the Father’s love.
Christ’s command to “Go” was the theme of the third day of the conference. Challenging and inspiring messages clearly imparted the call to find our role in fulfilling the Great Commission. Through intercession and the sharing of testimonies, God’s longing to see the nations saved came through clearly. The day ended with people streaming to the front, responding to the challenge to use their life to fulfil the Great Commission.
Finally, those in the conference were invited to the Day of Compassion, held the following Saturday, in their home cities across Metro Manila Plus. Almost 300 local Christians joined teams for evangelism, simultaneously taking the gospel to the streets all over the city. More than 700 people gave their lives to Jesus during that extraordinary day. Our prayer is that these efforts will help catalyse a growing movement beginning in Metro Manila Plus, leading to God’s Kingdom manifesting itself in every area of society within the Philippines.
“It was such an amazing time. You could really feel the tangible presence of God. This GYO was really equipping. Jesus has revealed Himself to me more and more.” – Frank, Las Piñas.
