What is Jesus Global Youth Day?
Jesus Global Youth Day (JGYD) 2019 is the first ever simultaneous gathering of youth from all over the globe, with a historic assembly at the Mall of Asia Arena, Manila, Phillippines. This celebration coincides with the United Nations International Youth Day in August.
The three-day conference, from August 8 to 10, aims to unite inspire and challenge the young generation of today to initiate CHANGE through the message of the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ.
Throughout the three-day event, there were different conferences, plenary talks, and trainings conducted by world-renowned resources persons and motivational speakers on various topics such as leadership, evangelism, worship, discipleship, campus ministry and missions. There were also worship concerts led by celebrated Christian bands and artists every evening.
The 50,000 delegates and the millions who attended local JGYD events are now making a Kingdom mark on this generation.
What was shared?
Young Christians were inspired to love Christ as they learned with other youth delegates from all over the world the joy of seeking and finding God’s purpose in their lives.
The youth were challenged to live committed lives in Christ through Gospel truths shared by highly respected international Christian speakers.
Young Christians were encouraged to be the first to lead the change they want to see in their generation as by immersing themselves in community and campus missions, and heartfelt worship with world-renowned Christian bands.

Trust Indicator 4 -Bishop Noel Pantoja
“Jesus Global Youth Day is the fruit of people from various nations and languages praying for a way to bring revival to today’s youth. This is an opportunity to recast the vision of Matthew 28:19-20 to this young generation which they will bring back to their home churches.”
Bishop Noel Pantoja
National Director of Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches and Chairman of Jesus Global Youth Day 2019 Philippine Steering Committee
Trust Indicator 3 – Tan-Chi
“Someone once said, Christianity is one generation away from extinction. It is our duty and privilege as Christians to disciple the next generation so they can become salt and light to this world for the glory of God. Jesus Global Youth Day will help the youth know what God wants them to be and do what God wants them to do. This event will help galvanize and mobilize the Timothy and John Marks of this generation.”
Dr. Peter Tan-Chi, Senior Pastor

“There is so much harvesting to be done in our community. That’s why we will be joining as a partner church. We need more workers and fresh approaches to reach those who are seeking the truth in our neighborhood.”

“Be a part of this. Come as a delegate. Invite your young people. Whether you are coming from another country or you are coming from the Philippines, invite your young people and pastors and leaders to participate in one of the greatest events and movements that’s going to happen here in the Philippines, the Jesus Global Youth Day!”

Youth Mission Immersion
Christian youth from all over the world broke out of their comfort zones to live out the Gospel in Metro Manila. For seven days, hundreds of foreign youth delegates lived in partner local churches. They formed teams that reached out to communities and public high schools.
The teams shared the Gospel to the youth and children. They conducted exciting interactive programs that teach values and Biblical lessons to young people. Community service allowed the YMI Teams to “love thy neighbor.” They rolled out creative evangelistic programs and innovative service projects for the community. YMI Teams were also given the chance to lead their host church’s Sunday Service. They joined discipleship small groups and youth mentoring. The YMI delegates helped forged strong youth leaders and went home spiritually empowered.
