KYCK 2013

10 May


If you’ve been on Facebook anytime within the last two weeks, chances are you would have seen a member of Ignite posting about the amazing time he or she has had at KYCK 2013. Please allow me to fill you in on what was a great weekend.

KYCK is a conference held each year at Katoomba Christian Convention for high-schoolers.

The theme at KYCK 2013 was “This Is Love”. Two faithful men, Dave Miers (St Faith’s Narrabeen) and Jeremy Dunne (City Light Church Balmain), preached through the book of 1 John.

The memory verse consisted of the following verse set to a popular Taylor Swift song (with the help of some goat-shrieks – ask an Igniter):

Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4:10

From God’s word Dave and Jeremy challenged us to know the love of our heavenly Father better and so respond by calling sin for what it really is; by loving God through obedience to him; by knowing our identity as Christians; by changing our desires though tasting God’s goodness daily; by relating to God as our heavenly Father, not our drill-sergeant; by letting the love of God transform our ears and mouths as we listen to and talk to one another; and by being sure of our salvation as we believe in Jesus, obeying him and practically loving his people.

The biggest highlight for me was during the Saturday night session, when hundreds of teenagers flocked out the back of the building, having just become a Christian, or having made a commitment to love others like Jesus has loved them. This included one of our own! Praise God for the work he is doing in Ignite!

Parents, please take the opportunity to read through 1 John again with your teenager, and talk about the ways they want to grow practically in their love for their brothers and sisters at Ignite.

In fact anyone else who bumps into an Igniter can ask what he or she learnt and how he or she is going to live out the love of God in their life!
