Kairos is an international federation of Christian
outreaches serving people aged 13-30.
Kairos, an outreach of the Sword of the Spirit, exists to impact the lives of young people by promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ and the fullness of life that comes through the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the Father. Kairos specifically recognizes the need for young people to make it all the way to becoming mature adult disciples – far too many make it only part way. Raising young disciples to maturity demands a comprehensive approach, not just one that works while they are part of a youth group. For more information, click here.
The Youth Bridge captures this understanding and applies it. A bridge is only effective if it reaches from shore to shore. Our standard for youth work is getting youth from Christian childhood to Christian adulthood. To do this, we provide every youth with support every step of the way. We build lives, not just experiences.
Young people live in a Kairos season – a time when they establish who they are and who they will become. They set their moral standards, consider a religious vocation or find a marriage partner, and choose a career. Most importantly, young people are in a special position to make a decision to follow Jesus Christ. In many ways, it is the most important time of their lives.
We also believe the era we live in now is a Kairos time, a special season when God’s grace is available, a season in which he is raising up a generation of young people who will fully commit their lives to him and take a stand for the glory of his name.
