From event to movement

We use an event as an accelerator, but we want to be a movement. The event is an important place where DNA gets transferred; it is a pressure cooker for challenging the existing culture. Having the teens for one week a year, for some consecutive years, is a great opportunity to speak into their lives. We encourage teens to continue their journey at home and we are putting more and more energy in fuelling the movement throughout the year.

We have three core values:

Have fun

We believe we need to have fun, create history together, to be at ease and to be able to open up. We believe there is a lot of entertainment in their lives, but we want to be a place where they have fun.
TeenStreet provides opportunities for teens to develop their friendship with Jesus, their relationship with other teens and their relationships with trusted adults.

Go deep

We want everyone to be discipled, and to disciple others in return. To sustain this we use a structure where teens from 13-17 are in same gender small groups with a coach. This coach is usually 21+. To be able to also properly support, guide and train the coaches, every six to eight coaches are discipled by a mentor couple.

The small groups facilitate us to be real and go deep, in order to let God speak into their lives. They encourage and cheer for each other. It is a safe place to share their thoughts and to grow and be built up.

Be bold

Teens are encouraged to find their own path with God and to reach out to the people around them. We are called to reach the world, being a part of Jesus' mission. By giving teens a challenge, they know they matter and that God wants to use them.
We want teenagers to be able to serve God in many different ways, using their own gifting and passions. This is about doing things together for God and a hurting world!
