Who is going to be there? ↑
The New Apostolic Church is expecting more than 30,000 participants to be at the International Youth Convention 2019. All youth and young adults aged from 14 to 35 - irrespective of their marital or family status– are invited, along with their friends, as well as those to be confirmed in the year 2020. They will be accompanied by their youth counsellors, their confirmation teachers and their partners. The invitation also goes out to the congregation rectors and district ministers with their partners.
All others are welcome to come as helpers, then such an event, lasting several days, wouldn't be possible to run without voluntary support.
The registration process ↑
Similarly to the European Youth Day 2009, registration is organised in the form of groups. This is to reduce organisational effort running up to and later, onsite in Düsseldorf, as far as possible. The process also assures that a contact person is nominated for participating minors.
Each European congregation will have received up to five registration cards. Group leaders can register using the code printed on each respective card. The group leader is then able to add further members to his/her group. The five registration cards which have been sent will allow a maximum of five groups to be formed. Further registration cards can be ordered through the respective Church administration office.
