TeenStreet is an international Christian event for teenagers. We work with the Church to motivate, equip and walk alongside (Christian) teens from all across Europe to have a real friendship with Jesus and reflect Him daily in their world.
TeenStreet started in 1993 with a total of 53 teenagers and has grown rapidly. Today we have 7 annual week-long events in 6 countries and multiple weekend events in over 15 countries, spread over 4 continents. Around 10,000 participants and volunteers attend and invest in these events. In the next years, we expect to see at least 30 more events started in countries across the world, including the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
We are committed to working with churches and youth groups, supporting them in their ministry to teenagers. At the same time, we emphasise cooperation with churches, because it’s so important that teenagers have a Christian community to be part of after TeenStreet.
At TeenStreet we want to encourage teenagers in their walk with Jesus and help them make wise decisions. That is why every participant is part of a small group. Members of a small group share the same language and are the same age. Their adult leader supports them and shares his or her personal relationship with Jesus with them.
During the main meetings the teenagers also learn about living in relationship with God. They take what they hear in the main meetings to their small groups to reflect on it and apply it to their lives at home. In addition, TeenStreet offers many exciting things for the teenagers to take part in, including sports, creative arts, seminars and workshops. They also have free time to get to know people from other countries, with different cultural and church backgrounds.
