About Us

Pefy organizes conferences which bring together youth leaders from various European countries and youth organisations.

The main event is the annual conference for the national leaders of the youth ministries of PEF member movements. In 2014, we launch the next level of networking: PEFY Regional Round Tables. They will take place in six different regions around Europe, and enhance closer cooperation between neighbouring countries’ youth leaders. Through the branches of the PEFY, different youth ministries are also able to exchange and share resources, join for continent-wide prayer for Europe, and network with others who work in the areas of evangelism, short-term missions, and school or student ministries. PEFY is an international platform with a goal to serve the young Europeans, their leaders and churches, and be a channel of support and blessing for them.

Our History

It was on the 8th of June in 2003 that a couple of national leaders involved in ministry with young people from different European countries met during the Pentecostal European Conference in the hall called “Europe” in Berlin.link, build relationships, share experiences in youth ministry, pray together in annual meetings and prepare youth events at European Conferences.In 2006 the small network decided to develop and become more official in regards to the PEF (Pentecostal European Fellowship) a network representing more than 3.500.000 members from different Pentecostal churches and organizations across Europe.The year 2008 was the turning point and an official board was established. It’s goal is to develop PEFY into an recognized European network of more than 250,000 youth, ready to input the local church based on youth exchange, impact teams At that time, the goal was to (evangelism), training and conferences.
