Veta Youth is a mission agency of CCVT. Here is a bit more about them.
Veta started almost 15 years ago by a group of Churches of Christ Vic/Tas ministry leaders who felt frustrated that the spiritual aspect of our lives is so restricted in our culture. They set out to help raise up a generation of Christian young people who act as the hands and feet of Jesus, demonstrating his love in every area of life; and, when they finish school, building communities centred on Christ, and loving and serving and working to see their universities, their workplaces, and their local neighbourhoods transformed by God’s love.
They recognised that students needed an experience of discipleship that was rigorous and meaningful, and that would make sense in their world. And so a 1 year discipleship experience called Vetamorphus was created which enabled students to gain school credit for their spiritual growth. Linking the experience to the Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology meant that student learning counts towards their VCE and university entry score.
Over 2,000 students have now completed this 1 year experience of discipleship and it is available across Australia—and now in Uganda!
Here’s what Veta parent Nigel Rosenzweig had to say: "Amelia and I were pleased to see our three children do Vetamorphus. It was always their choice to participate. Once our younger children saw the transformational opportunities that our first son Sam was experiencing through the service projects, small group gatherings, personal readings, and camps, they too were eager to participate! As parents we observed that Sam (2013), Isaac (2014), and Deanna (2015) were all positively impacted by Vetamorphus. It has been significant to see all our children choose to take this discipleship path."
As one significant ministry mentor has shared, "the healthiest thing a young person can say is, 'We always do it this way in my home.'"
