India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and 35. In 2020, the average age of an Indian was 29 years, compared to 37 for China and 48 for Japan. This speaks of a relatively young nation of youth and young adults.
Every one of us is designed for a life of victory and fullness. However many young people are often caught in a web of emotional pain. Hurt, rejection, bitterness, anger, loneliness and addictions are often a norm among them. Bangalore, aside from other things, is known as the suicide capital of India.
In this context, Kerygma seeks to encourage young people to discover themselves, discover others and discover God. This we believe is the path to move into a life of increasing victory and joy.
