The second Chile national Nazarene Youth International conference was held 20-24 February at the Paine Evangelical Event Center in Santiago. The conference was called Inspira 2019, and 15 youth leaders from 10 countries in South America came alongside 12 Chile youth pastors to host the event.
There were more than 230 youth present from the four districts in Chile. Eight of the youth were baptized during the event.
“[The baptisms were] an inspirational act of faith, both for the other youth participating in the event and for the organizers, pastors, and members of the public who were present,” said Jaime Román, Chile NYI coordinator.
Participants had the opportunity to attend 15 workshops led by a variety of presenters and eight plenary sessions led by several international presenters, including NYI Global Council Chair Adiel Teixeira, Regional NYI President Christiano Manta, Chile Holistic Ministries Coordinator Alessandro Polonio, Peru Youth Pastor Gabriel Aparicio, and Chile NYI Coordinator Román.
Inspira 2019 was organized by more than 70 youth volunteers, and the worship was led by several representatives from the four districts in the country. Chilean musicians Emi and Gene Valenzuela and Nehemias and Mical Marchant also performed at the conference.
