RELATED is a movement among young people in the area we call north-east Veluwe. Within Related we mix soccer, creativity, friends, relaxing, celebration, Connect groups, Jesus and lots more. We love God, because He loves us. We have 3 focus points which are very important for us;
− Relationship with God
− Relationship with each other
− Relationship with the world
We work in the area of the north-east Veluwe, that’s the villages between Zwolle and Apeldoorn. We relate with the local youth in various villages through playing SOCCER.
Every last Sunday of the month we organize RELATED.LIVE. These are relaxed evenings with a band, different dramas, clips, a life story and a challenging short kind of sermon.
We also have CONNECT GROUPS these are groups of young people that come together to meet God and each other. Often in these Connect Groups deep friendships a built and moments of intimacy with God happen. Besides that we organize different Youth Alpha courses where young people who are interested in God can discover more of who He is.
ABOUT THE MOVEMENT
Related is an initiative of Youth with a Mission Heidebeek, but more and more it is carried by a group of young people in the north-east Veluwe region.
Meet the Staff
Hi, I'm Bart, married with Marieke. We have 3 kids. It's my desire to make Jesus known in the Netherlands and Europe. That's why I'm overseeing the evangelism center at Heidebeek. Mainly I work with an event called 'the God Story'.
Through young missionaries, Jesus made a difference in my life. And with the relational youth work we do with GO Teams I hope other young people start being the difference wherever they are.
Youth & Evangelism; the pefect combination ! Just started a Youthcenter in Heerde; de Werf
