EFY Brisbane 2012


With our youth at the University of Queensland in St Lucia, Brisbane for EFY/SMYC (Special Multistake Youth Conference) this week, I thought now would be a good time to take a brief trip down memory lane and watch the 2012 Brisbane EFY slideshow.

You will recall it was originally scheduled for January 2011, but the Lockyer Valley, Ipswich and Brisbane floods resulted in it being postponed. I’m really glad it was able to go ahead in 2012 and I’m very grateful for UQ, the Pitmans, the counsellors, members…everyone involved in making it a success. Especially the Youth…pun totally intended.

So, while we await their return, let’s take a look at what those who went in 2012 did during EFY 2012 in Brisbane.

For those stumbling across this not knowing what we’re talking about, EFY stands for Especially For Youth and is a really awesome Youth Conference organised for the youth 14-18 years old of the Church. The standards are high and so are the spiritual rewards.

Outside of North America it is supposed to be called a Special Multistake youth Conference. I don’t know why. The Church is supposed to be the same all over the world. In any case, I’ve met very few people who don’t use the term EFY first and then say SMYC afterwards. “Are you going to EFY? …oops…SMYC?”

Enjoy the video. I’ll try to post a few more Brisbane 2012 EFY videos in the next day or so. Pretty soon 2012 videos will be old news as 2014 videos will appear within hours of the youth leaving UQ Saturday morning.
