UNIFY - YMCA Christian Mission Network

UNIFY is a platform for YMCAs to share and reflect on the Christian Mission of the YMCA, as stated in the Paris Basis (1855), the founding document of the YMCA:

«The Young Men’s Christian Associations seek to unite those who, regarding Jesus Christ as their God and Saviour, according to the Holy Scriptures, desire to be his disciples in their faith and in their life, and to associate their efforts for the extension of his Kingdom.» Paris Basis, 1855

UNIFY aims to enable YMCA to:

  • experience loving fellowship and unity with those who follow Jesus
  • serve those in need through commitment and solidarity
  • be more confident in its roots as a Christian ecumenical Movement
  • make its Christian identity relevant to today’s young people and communities
  • be more responsive to the spiritual and social needs of its members and beneficiaries
