Each year over 7,000 of Africa’s destitute children convene at our church headquarters in Kampala for five days to learn how to build and lead Godly families, businesses, and communities. These youth, ranging from 15-35 years old and representing at least nine countries, gather to listen to an impressive array of speakers teaching on topics like:

At the conclusion of the conference, each participant receives a Certificates of Completion which gives him or her an advantage when seeking local employment. In addition, during break-out sessions, our staff identify several dozen extremely promising young leaders. These individuals are then discipled and trained to become our ministry’s next generation of leadership. In fact, one of our missionaries’ most beloved staff members is Martin Kalulu, our Missions Coordinator, who was discovered at Youth Ablaze almost ten years ago.

Even though most of these participants are among the poorest of the poor, many scrape together the $4 registration fee by working for months at odd jobs. While charging a registration fee may seem harsh from an American perspective, paying this fee provides the young adults with desperately needed self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment while off-setting approximately half of the conference expense. In fact, after last year’s conference, sixty participants gave towards the 2016 conference!

The balance is funded through local Ugandan businesses who believe in the transformative nature of this conference and through gifts from our US partners. Please prayerfully consider joining us in prayer and giving toward this event that impacts so many young lives for Christ.
