Prince Laryea has been appointed as the new Director of Mission at British Youth for Christ. Prince’s pioneering and entrepreneurial dynamic, refined through 10 years of leadership in various mission contexts, will be an invaluable asset to BYFC, as it moves forward in its mission to take the Good News of Jesus relevantly to every young person in Britain.
He brings to the role a real passion for authentic mission into the mainstream sphere of the arts, entertainment and sport. Prince founded and led youth charity, Acts 29, and was also one of the founding members and manager of UK hip-hop band, The 29th Chapter. The band toured internationally and released five successful albums during their 10-year tenure.
Prince says, “More than ever, young people need a clear relevant voice, communicating the truth and hope which is the Gospel of Jesus. It’s an honour for me to join this organisation of passionate evangelists, missionaries and youth workers. I look forward to making a lasting contribution to this exciting work.”
