2018 G412 Leadership Development Application

*Denotes Required Field

G412 "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity."

1 Timothy 4:12

G412 is a leadership development program for young people who want to develop leadership skills in their life, go deeper in their relationship with Jesus, and get equipped to work effectively with children, whether at JOY or in a variety of settings. Inspired by 1 Timothy 4:12, our goal is to challenge and train young people to live out their faith in such a way that transforms their world.
