Refined in His fire. Renewed by His Spirit. Radiant in His love.
These three Râ€™s encapsulate the essence of the Jubilee. They combine the two essential themes- â€œclothing the movement in white linen and receiving the power from on highâ€ (Luke 24:49).
The Jubilee theme : â€˜Refined Renewed Radiantâ€™ was put together by Shelton Pinheiro (Co-ordinator, Rexband).
Jubilee Logo : A cross and a rising flame within the figure of 25 symbolises the fire of the Holy Spirit and the centrality of Jesus and His mission within the movement. The colours blue, orange and white stand for youthfulness, the fire of the Holy Spirit and the call to holiness.

History of Jesus Youth Movement
A missionary movement at the service of the Church
1970s – The flame of renewal spreads across the world through the Charismatic Renewal
The great wave of the Holy Spirit gave rise to many youth groups in the southernmost tip of India, Kerala, the state popularly known as, God’s Own Country.
1985 – In the international year of Youth, the youth from these groups came together in Kerala for a conference. The conference was called Jesus Youth ’85 and the participants began to call themselves Jesus Youth.
These young people shared their experiences and formed Prayer Groups and cell groups wherever they where – work places, parishes, schools, campuses… and when they moved into different parts of the world, they carried their lifestyle along with them.
Today the movement is alive in 25 countries around the world, making aÂ difference among students, professionals, young families, teenagers & children in Asia, Europe, Australia and America.
This year the movement reaches a milestone – 25 years of the movement
The theme is ready – The jubilee cross has began its journey across continents – The prayers are rising – the purification has begun – the celebrations have begun – The global conference is at hand – The Holy Spirit is on the move
