Who We Are

Redefinition Youth is a ministry of EFAC South Australia. We exist to support and encourage youth ministry in South Australia primarily through our annual Redef Camp. This year, we are exploring the first 8 chapters of Romans at Redef Camp 2023, ‘His Mercy Is More’. Keep reading to meet our speakers!

Our 2023 Speakers

Junior Stream:

Hey, I’m Lauren! I got married during Redef last year (if you wondered where some of your leaders disappeared for the day), and ever since I got married I’ve been busy trying to convince my husband that cats aren’t that evil and we should get one. I’m studying at Bible College here in Adelaide, and working as a Student Minister at my church Trinity Colonel Light Gardens. When I’m not at college and get a break from assignments I spend my time reading, playing frisbee, trying to persuade my garden to grow, and sewing.
 
I’m really looking forward to speaking at Redef this year because Romans is a fantastic book of the Bible that has helped many people throughout time (including me when I was at Youth!) understand what God has done for his people through Jesus. I’m also looking forward to reliving my youth camp days (youth camps are the one place where you survive with no sleep), and getting to know all of you and your stories of how God has changed your lives!

Senior Stream:

Oli decided to follow Jesus for himself with the help of youth ministries like Redef, so he is especially excited to join again! He’s married to Meg and they have two kids. After four years serving as a Youth Pastor, they moved to the US to finish Bible College at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Oli was director of Senior CE camp for 6 years and is passionate about ministry to the next generation, especially seeing young people take hold of the faith with courage, conviction, and complete dependency on the grace of God. He’s done his very best to keep the ‘u’ in colour and degrees in Celsius and can’t wait to join us back in Australia!
