Wales

Home » Wales

Tracing its roots back more than 1500 years, Wales has an unbroken history of Christian witness, culminating in the William Morgan Bible of 1588 that preserved the Welsh language during a period of external oppression.  Though a revival in the last 100 years garnered much attention globally, modern Wales is considerably less Christian than any other historical time period.  Going to Wales with Global Youth Ministry offers you an opportunity to share in the experiences of those keen to revitalize the spiritual fervor that once swept the nation.  It also means rubbing shoulders with locals who are not only Welsh, but also English, Scottish, Irish and various other world nationalities enthusiastic about sharing the Christian faith.  Who knows, you may yet get to experience another Great Welsh revival!
