New dreams are being dreamed and new visions poured out. They are not just ours alone, but visions straight from the heart of God. It is not our desire to "ride some romantic wave" and chase after dreams dreamed by Christians 275 years ago.
The vision God has given us is for the growth of AYF base in Minna Diocese. The vision comes from the heart of God.
He has not forgotten the calling and identity placed upon AYF Diocesans Executives years ago. Through the course of time, this small Group of religion, in the Anglican Communion, as God’s Mighty weapon against the works of Satan is sent out as missionaries into the most difficult regions of the world.
God has been speaking to us about a new wave of missionaries to be sent out: disciples willing to go and longing to reclaim the inheritance and calling God has given. The vision is to see thousands of new workers sent into the nations.
The vision is for a new movement not like any before! It will be a revolution… sweeping across all the Anglican youth fellowship representing the youths worldwide, spreading out into the nations. There will be no limits to the means used to reach the end goal. We want to see every generation united together, connected to one another, mobilized, and called out to use every God-given tool to reach everyone with the saving Gospel of Jesus.
The vision is to see old ideas integrated with new ways. Our desire is that a new and special emphasis be placed on all works of hands (photography, fine arts, drama, poetry, sculpture, music, business, motivation, inspiration etc.) and communication technologies.
We believe that these two areas are going to play dynamic roles in the way of missions in the future. We want AYF to become a forum for new ideas, dreamed in the hearts of the willing, and through training and refining, becoming foundations for change in the nations.
It's not just about a location which once held such importance for the Protestant missions movement. It's about using the most effective means to see a lost world, reached with the hope of Jesus Christ, that we may one day stand together and God may receive the praise of men from every tribe and tongue.
The vision can only be realized as God becomes the sole priority of our lives and the work that He has given our sole goal…it's about being focused on the field He has called us to.
