United We Stand is a National gathering, activating young Australians to unite on one night, in many locations, represented by every Christian denomination, to make a stand for Jesus Christ.
United We Stand is the breathing, living expression of everything we have come to believe and value about youth ministry over the last 30 years. Together as we amass in the 10,000s we make a bold declaration collectively that Jesus is having an undeniable positive influence within our Generation!

United We Stand is about making a statement. It’s showing Australia that we are united in our cause. That’s why we do it on one night. The impact of this could not be any greater than one night.
Multiple locations give the opportunity for many youth, school and community leaders to work together. It allows us to be involved in something bigger than ourselves, giving us the opportunity to collaborate and encourage one another in our various ministry expressions in order to build a healthy kingdom culture. It gives a powerful voice to the masses to bring about significant change.
We have one faith, with many expressions. It’s not one denomination doing it ‘better’ but all of us doing it together. We’re better together. It’s healthier to have us all working in unity rather than in competition.
ACTIVATION OF STUDENTS
We believe that as leaders we are called to equip young people to do the work of ministry, not just a selected, chosen few. ‘Make a Stand’ creates an avenue to for young people to make a stand in their own unique way, and to express their faith in Jesus. It provides opportunity for young people to creatively outreach and make a tangible, profound impact in their school and amongst their peers.
