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 More? Cafe and the unique space it provides for people to wrestle with modern life and how Jesus fits in and 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!
