Having the name Michael Palin was always going to be a great icebreaker! After spending much of my teenage years causing a small amount of trouble I got involved in a youth group and from then on things began to change. This was the beginning of my journey with God and realising His hand was on my life and He was keeping an eye on me.
Through 267 I want to support and encourage youth and children’s work across the area. I look forward to seeing what God is doing where you are and I hope to be able to support in some way.
I was looking to use my skills in a more meaningful way when ‘by chance’ I came across the267project. I say by chance but I have no doubt that it was God’s plan for me.
I am excited to know that young people in this area (including my own) have many opportunities through the work of 267 to encounter God. Opportunities at their own level that don’t involve their parents telling them what to do or believe, a chance for them to be themselves and for that to be OK.
Project Youth Worker
Mike rescued me when I was first commissioned to resurrect youth work in our church! So I have seen, first hand, the difference the project can make to front-line youth and children’s ministry.
I love the hands-on residentials, seeing the light-bulb moments in young people’s faith. I adore Haven and the unique space it provides for people to wrestle with modern life and how Jesus fits in. I am a total, unashamed devotee of the Youth Leaders’ Network – supporting these crazy, big-hearted and creative workers who give so much for God’s Kingdom!
I have known 267 for around 6 years and after a year of interning for them, I’m now taking on a new role as Events Coordinator. I have a passion for being involved in our events from start to finish, as well as getting to see the lasting impact they have on the youth that attend.
I am so excited to help develop the project further past what it already is! 267 has allowed myself and many others to live out our faith the way it should and the way God wants it to be. The joy and laughter which radiates from every event cannot be measured and I hope to continue sharing in this for the year ahead.
I’ve been involved in 267 as one of the youth for roughly 6 years now, and after the team had served me for a long time I felt compelled to assist them over my gap year.
I have a heart for the more hands on side of youthwork, and want to help develop areas of our ministry like mentoring and our website content. I’m also interested in helping out with the continued smooth running of our events like Fuel and Haven.
