IYC Logo

The Irish Youth Convention is an interdenominational group of evangelical Christians, with a desire to see generations of young people raised up to be disciple making disciples of Jesus Christ. The IYC committee shares the basis of faith of Christian Conventions. Above all, IYC shares the belief that “all Scripture is God breathed” and is “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3: 16). Our desire is to see God’s Word communicated faithfully, clearly and creatively so that generations of young people are raised up to live out their Christian faith in their homes, their schools, their local churches and in the wider community.
