The International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry – Africa Region meets every second year. Previous conferences were held in South Africa (2014) and Kenya (2016). In 2018 this conference will be held at the Justo Mwale University in Lusaka, Zambia.


Academics and practitioners in Youth Ministry seize the opportunity to share and discuss the current issues and challenges that the youth in Africa are facing. With the migration of youth to Europe and the East, the changing culture and technology, social media and climate changes have an immense influence on the youth in Africa to which the Church cannot cast a blind eye. There is also on the other hand much that African youth can contribute to the rest of the world.

For Whom?

We want to bring together people who are currently involved with youth ministry research projects:

  • people teaching youth ministry,
  • masters and PhD students and students who plan on getting involved in the study-field in the future,
  • people who are involved in youth ministry, in church, institutions and organizations as well as
  • colleagues in related fields of study like Sociology, Psychology and others.
