Metanoia ~ ICYCE Reborn
Since 1980, World Methodist Evangelism has empowered young people to live as grace filled, faith sharing, disciples of Jesus Christ. Between 1980 and 2010, over 6,500 young people, ages 17-30 from 60 countries have been a part of our International Christian Youth Conferences on Evangelism (ICYCE). These transformative experiences have taken place in England (1980), Bahamas (1983), Australia (1987), Mexico (1990), Germany (1994), the United States (1998), Northern Ireland (2002), Brazil (2005), and Korea (2010).
Renamed Metanoia to highlight the importance of spiritual transformation, World Methodist Evangelism is renewing this vital ministry in the worldwide Methodist Wesleyan family.
John Wesley said all he needed was 100 people – lay or clergy – who love God and hate evil, and they would shake the gates of hell and usher in the Kingdom of God. Through Metanoia, WME is raising up young people who love God and hate evil. We are shaking the gates of hell as we empower these young Christ followers to deepen their faith, share it with integrity and grace, and impact their world on behalf of Jesus Christ.
Building on the foundation of ICYCE, from 30 May to 6 June 2018 young adults from across the globe will gather in Costa Rica for Metanoia 2018 – a faith strengthening, mission empowering, horizon expanding time of transformation.
