I know it is a bit cliché to say, but AYC has definitely changed my life. Seeing such a strong hunger for God in Alaska was one of the most beautiful as well as heart wrenching things I’ve ever experienced. So many of the people in Alaska didn’t know God before, but they were hungry for something more. Their cups were empty, but by the grace of God, He filled their cups.

Before AYC, I wasn’t very good with witnessing to people wherever I went, but God changed that. During outreach, I noticed I would stay back when it came to speaking to people. However, I would pray with the people. That wasn’t enough. On day two of outreach, I saw a lady walking along the side of the road and I could feel her hunger, but I was afraid to … Read More »

This past August, nineteen young adults and four chaperones—the Reinkings and the Harrys—embarked on an AYC trip to Prague, Czech Republic to make His purpose our passion. Although the city is truly like a fairy tale in architecture and design, there are severe strongholds at work. According to research, 5% of Czech people are Protestant, 2% are Orthodox/ Evangelical, 13% are undecided, 40% are Roman Catholic, and the remaining 40% are atheist. The Czech nation places so much value on education and human ingenuity that it sees no place for faith; thus, Czech contains one of the largest atheist and agnostic populaces in the world. There is only one UPCI church in the country, maintaining around fifteen members. This was the spiritual battlefield we stepped into on August 5, 2017.

When we arrived, we met several people who had already … Read More »



The Great Adventure: Malawi

Salama! (Hello!) This past summer I had the privilege to attend an Apostolic Youth Corps trip to Madagascar. We were able to minister alongside missionaries Chris and Sister Paula Richardson. Under the leadership of our chaperones, the Enseys, the Huizars, and Sister Clayton, we witnessed 215 people receive the Holy Ghost, twenty-three healed including two sets of blinded eyes opened and twenty people baptized in saving name of Jesus Christ.

This trip affected me in a way that can’t necessarily be put into words. My bishop used to have a saying, “Change is not a bad thing.” However, this saying always seemed to be followed by a disappointing change. This trip made me realize that change truly is a beautiful thing. If you’re thinking about going on an AYC trip, there are a few things to consider.

You can no … Read More »

This summer, Apostolic Youth Corps (AYC) traveled to nine destinations around the world. 482 young people applied to be a part of AYC this year, and they ministered, experienced new locations and cultures, and made lifelong friendships and memories. God is moving mightily around the world, and AYC is helping to bring laborers to hungry, hurting people. We’re excited to share with you reports of all that God is doing around the world through Apostolic Youth Corps!

Our Great Adventure

26th July

Where does the Great Adventure begin? Perhaps it all begins with a promotional video, a flier, a testimony, or a youth leader challenging you to attend an Apostolic Youth Corps trip. You pray about it and decide, “Yes! I want to help!” Eventually, you turn in your application and try to prepare for the trip of a lifetime. You read through emails, texts, and posts for any information to help you prepare for this unique experience.

You become a traveling salesman, expert car washer, and an experienced chef raising money for your great adventure. Finally, it’s departure day! You have been preparing for this day for months. You say aloud, “Passport? Check! Comfortable shoes? Check! Bible? Check! Fresh mints? Oh no, I left them at church. Mom, we have to stop at the store!” One thing is missing—one thing for … Read More »
