Jesus Global Youth Day (JGYD), the first-ever simultaneous gathering of youths from all over the globe, was held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila. The youth conference, which ran from August 8 to 10, aims to spur Gen Z and millennial Christians to love Christ, live committed and lead change through the message of the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ.

Speakers from around the world shared their insights on different topics such as leadership, evangelism and missions, worship, discipleship and campus ministry through the various plenary sessions. There were also worship festivals every evening led by celebrated Christian bands and artists.

Aside from the main activities in MOA Arena, local JGYD celebrations happened at the same time in Laoag, San Fernando City in La Union, Pampanga, Quezon, Cebu, Rizal and other provinces. Also, about 400 JGYD events unfolded in various countries worldwide.

Popular evangelist and founder of Life Without Limbs Nick Vujicic and Australian worship band Planetshakers are two of the renowned names who headlined the first day of the three-day event. Vujicic led the main session in the evening while Planetshakers capped off the day with a praise and worship session.
