The Jesus Youth of New Zealand organized Strings – a retreat for musicians. It was attended by 22 JY musicians from all over NZ. The main resources for the retreat were Jethin Pauly from Australia, and Adolf Goldwyn from New Zealand. The sessions were aimed at strengthening the conviction of their call to the music ministry, growing closer to the Lord, and giving Him the best of our talents. Apart from spiritual inputs, the participants were also led through the practical aspects of how to lead a praise and worship and Eucharistic Adorations, and building a ministry.
