What is Nexus Vivus?

Cyangugu Bill086Nexus (To Connect) Vivus (Life) International (Around the world) began as an idea 35 years ago with a group of friends who began to informally communicate with one common purpose and dream about reaching out to young people around the world.

This dream has evolved through these 35 years and has taken the shape of a collection of friends committed to young people across the world who are our most treasured resource.

Nexus Vivus International currently represents people who live in twenty different nations who are actively involved in the lives of young people, and is growing.

Investing in the few to reach the many.

Addition – One person reaching 1,000 people per day for 30 years will impact 10,950,000.
Multiplication – One person making a disciple of one person for one year. Each person in turn disciples a new person year two and so on.  In 30 years the impact will be: 1,073, 741,824.

Our Strategy and Belief. Our place in the Mission world is around this idea of Multiplication. Making Disciples. Leadership Development.

Glyn Henman, Young Life Australia

“ NEXUS is a wonderful vehicle for believers who are working to reach youth – as a support and encouragement.”

“ Nexus Vivus is Belarusian for ‘Servant Leadership’ – they serve us by growing our leaders.”

“ Life humbled by His love and grace. Life with dignity and justice, mercy and peace. Life possible only because of Him who links us all in Nexus Vivus.”

Brett & Bong Cocreham, Life House Japan

90% of all young people live outside the United States / 90% of all “christian” adults who work with young people live inside the United States.

    PS…it will be 50 years ago next year that I tipped into the Kingdom at Malibu Club…so Young LIfe is sincerely an important part of my existence over all these years. Lived in Oregon then…met Christ the summer after I graduated from high school.
