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.
267 is like an extended family, with God as the Father of everyone connected to it. The heart of the ministry is to work alongside what God is already doing, through serving, supporting and inspiring the local church in their youth and children’s work. It is a fun and dynamic team to be a part of.
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’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.
