Who is the founder of Jesus Youth and where did it begin?

Unlike religious congregations and some other movements, Jesus Youth is not the product of a single person’s vision. The Charismatic Renewal swept through the churches of the picturesque state of Kerala, in the southern tip of India in the late 70's, touching the hearts of young people, leading to the formation of youth groups. In the early 80's, the groups grew rapidly, and in 1985, the International Year for Youth, these groups came together with a name: Jesus Youth.
