What is FM419?
FM419 is a youth & young adult evangelism training of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada that will show young people how to live a life that pleases God and equip them to share their faith in Jesus Christ with others. FM stands for “follow me” and comes from the scripture verse in Matthew 4:19, where Jesus says to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Working closely with local churches and following all current government restrictions related to COVID-19, we are excited to be offering this event live, and in person!

What are the session topics?
FM419 will cover the following topics:
- WHAT DOES MY WALK WITH GOD LOOK LIKE?
Young people will reflect on their Christian walk and learn Biblical ideas to help them grow in their faith.
- HOW DO I DEAL WITH THE CHALLENGES OF LIFE?
- This session looks at balancing our hectic lifestyles with God’s true purpose for our lives.
- HOW DO I TELL OTHERS ABOUT JESUS?
- Youth will learn how to share the Good News of Christ in a non-threatening way that their friends can accept and digest.
- HOW DO I HELP FRIENDS GROW IN THEIR WALK?
This is where young people learn the steps to stand beside, direct, and nurture those who have begun their own Christian walk.
How will this course help youth & young adults?
When young people participate in FM419, they will closely examine their own Christian walk. Where are they going? Are they on the right path? What can they do to draw closer to God? The FM419 training will equip them with tools and verses from His Word to keep them accountable and energized as they walk in His ways.
Scriptures tells us to be bold and share the Good News of Jesus Christ. FM419 helps equip youth to do that by sharing their faith with proven BGEAC tools to encourage those who are taking their first steps to eternal salvation.
This Celebration would not be possible without the support of the following organizations.
