The Congress - #realyou

23-26 September 2021

When we started organising this congress we had one idea in mind. It had to be all about you. What did you want us to address? So we asked. And your answer was clear: you wanted to delve into what it means to be a follower of Jesus in the 21st Century. In other words, who are you, really? Who is the #realyou?

It can be a challenge to stay true to or even recognize your #realyou as a follower of Jesus in an era in which Christianity is not always welcome.

The temptation can be to put on different masks, depending on where we find ourselves. We become one person at church, another at home, another at university, another at work, another on Instagram and social media… This impacts the decisions we make with regards to ourselves, our lifestyle and our relationships.
Yet what if the most satisfying thing is to discover our #realyou in terms of Jesus. After all, He is the perfect example of what it really means to be a human.

In the physical congress in 2021 we aim to navigate reality from #realChristian to #realfood, #realsex, #realJesus, #realrelationships and #realhope.


From now until the congress, we will also have some online sessions. Our next session is on Friday, 11 December 2020. More info here

Paul gives us a great starting point in Ephesians 2:10 (NLT), "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."

Join us in the discovery and celebration of the #realyou.


#realyou online sessions

Since the physical AMiCUS congress will now take place in 2021, we have decided to start a series of #realyou online sessions as a spin-off of the theme #realyou. These online sessions have the purpose of keeping #realconversations happening about #reallife topics with #realpeople like you. Join us on this #realdigitaljourney.
