1st – 4th March 2018
Cluj-Napoca, Romania

 

Unify 2018 was a platform for volunteers and staff from European YMCAs, to enable and enhance their Christian ministry within their own YMCA. During this conference we learned and understood more about our call to serve.  

We shared experiences, pray and worship, gain inspiration and discover new resources as we serve in our communities and especially as we serve those in need. Through our service we glorify God and therefore fulfill our call. 

«Whoever serves me must follow me and where I am my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me …»
                                                   
John 12,26
