Stu and Amy Matheson
Stu and Amy are leading and establishing the UK's Mission Adventures ministry for teens. The purpose of Mission Adventures is to provide a full-service missions programme to equip church youth leaders with the tools and resources to take their youth groups on a cross-cultural missions trip, something which is currently out of reach for many smaller churches.
As Mission Adventures staff, they will take care of all the details of the trip (food, housing, training, transportation, ministry planning, translation, debriefing etc), enabling youth leaders to lead their youth and share the experience with them, instead of getting bogged down in the planning and administration.
The aim is to take youth outside the distractions of their everyday lives and to provide an environment for them to encounter God in radical and life changing ways. The goal is that through a 'Mission Adventure', youth will not only be peersonally transformed by God and have their worldview broadened, but that, when they return home, they will work together collectively to apply what they have learned and experienced within their local community.
Stu and Amy began establishing this ministry at the start of 2016 and this site will provide updates from time to time of their programme's developments.
Stu and Amy, along with their young son, Aiden, moved back to the UK at the end of 2015, following God's leading after living in Canada for 6 years. Stu was born in England and has been a part of FBC since he was 3 years old. Amy is Canadian and they met through YWAM in the UK back in 2007.
