IYC Compact #9 - Proposed programme ↑
The ninth edition of IYC Compact gives an insight into the proposed programme. Thursday is arrival day. Services for Ascension Day will be held for the youth in various languages in the exhibition halls. The International Youth Convention will be officially opened by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider at an event in the Arena, which will include a colourful programme with short welcoming addresses. This will be followed by a programme over the exhibition premises with displays, presentations, workshops, lectures, hands-on activities and lots more. This programme will continue on Saturday from 9 a.m. The highlight will be on Sunday, celebrating the closing divine service in the Arena. Sunday afternoon will allow the youth to wind down in the Hall of Encounters.
IYC Compact #8 - International Youth Convention Choir ↑
Next year the youth, the youth choir leaders and youth delegates can all sing in the great International Youth Convention Choir (IYC Choir) and also perform during the closing divine service with Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider as well as the pop oratorio "I AM" in the Düsseldorf Arena.
Gerrit Junge (district church Northern and Eastern Germany) will be the musical director. He will be conducting four central choir practice sessions altogether, Germany wide, in spring 2019. These will be preceded by regional rehearsals.
Participation in both the IYC choir (divine service and pop oratorio) and the "Youth Convention Orchestra and friends" is not possible for organisational reasons.
IYC Compact #7 - Registering ↑
Registration for the International Youth Convention 2019 is organised by groups. Why can I only register as a group? So that the youth arrive together and, above all, can sleep together in one of the halls of the youth camp. Also, each individual has a group leader and therefore an onsite point of contact.
IYC Compact #6 – Show YOUR talent ↑
Included in the 2014 International Church Convention programme in Munich was a song contest, promoted by the German Bischoff Verlag. A remake is to take place under the motto “Show YOUR Talent 2”, with the aim of allowing 10 to 15 talented young people to show their talents on a big stage at the International Youth Convention (IYC) 2019 in Düsseldorf. We’re looking for talented singers and true-to-life youthful texts and music, whether drawn from pop, rock, ballads rap or blues ...show us what you can do - Show YOUR talent!
IYC Compact #5 - The participation fee ↑
The IYC gives participants the opportunity to create a colourful and wide-ranging programme, to be created by the youth for the youth, together with the support of the planning teams. Your own plans and ideas for the programme can be sent in here: . Sunday’s divine service and further main events will take place in the Arena. An entry fee of 125 euros will necessarily be levied against all visitors to help with the costs of provisioning and accommodating the youth.
IYC Compact #4 - Motto and design ↑
The motto “Here I am” refers to the biblical text in
1. Samuel 3:4 and in Acts 9:10.
The Church expresses four essential aspects here:
• Here I am – God says to me
• Here I am – is my response to the call of God
• Here I am – is my position
• Here I am – shows my willingness to help along
IYC Compact #3 - Taking part ↑
The New Apostolic Church is expecting more than 30,000 participants to be at the International Youth Convention 2019. All youth and young adults aged from 14 up to 35 - irrespective of their marital or family status– are invited, along with their friends, as well as those to be Confirmed in the year 2020. They will be accompanied by their youth counsellors, their confirmation teachers and their partners. Additionally, congregation rectors and district ministers are also invited, together with their partners.
All others can be there as helpers, because without voluntary support it would not be possible to run such a multi-day event.
IYC Compact #2 - Submitting contributions ↑
The youth have the opportunity to send in their own ideas and items for the programme. This IYC Compact issue gives an overview of the submission information required.
