Release Potential is the youth ministry of Release International, a charity that supports persecuted Christians around the world, aiming to inspire and challenge creative young Christians based in the UK and Ireland, to engage passionately and practically with the issue of persecution. Keith from Release visited the Queen's Badge Residential courses this year and is available to visit your company this session to speak to the boys about Release Potential. Speaking about his work Keith said: "We are often found in youth fellowships, schools, church groups, etc. raising awareness of the pain, passion and grace of Christians in many different countries. We try to do this in a contemporary and creative way. In addition, we are always seeking young people who may be interested in volunteering/internships/GAP years. We currently run a year-long programme called "Change Makers". It is a time where someone can try to make a change in their own local community and have the potential opportunity to experience a different global community.
