SACYN 2015, a reflective-planning gathering, is aimed at building on the three years of training module which was completed in 2014.
Themed ‘Spirituality and Integrity in Youth Leadership’, it is being held at the Gandhi Peace Foundation, New Delhi, India, from Oct 16 to Oct 20.
It is focusing on a reflection on the journey of SACYN for the past 12 years, as well as plan for the future in the light of those reflections. The reflective-planning sessions will be complemented with serious interactive sessions on Christian leadership, facilitated by senior church and mission leaders.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Any Christian worth his salt will be familiar with this verse from the book of Matthew.

We live in a nation where Asia’s major religions thrive. But do we really know what the followers believe in? If we do not, how can we have meaningful and genuine encounters with them?
This course gives an introduction to Asia’s major religions (Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism) and examines the elements vital to genuine encounters with followers of different belief systems and worldviews. Videos, case studies and group discussions will be used to enhance learning and understanding of Asian Religions.
