The European Christian Political Youth Network was established in July 2004 in Kortenberg (Belgium) by PerspectivE, Youth of the ChristianUnion (Netherlands) and other European Christian political youth organisations, such as the Christian Peoples Alliance Youth (United Kingdom). The founding of ECPYN was one of the results of the International Summer School where young people from all over Europe participated.
The ECPYN organises regional conferences as well in different parts of Europe and youth programs on conferences of the European Christian Political Movement. Regional conferences took place in Hellenthal, Germany in October 2008, Tbilisi, Georgia in October 2010 and St. Vith, Belgium in October 2011.
Furthermore the ECPYN organizes as well studyvisits. In 2012 a studyvisit went to Podgorica, Montenegro to study the situation of minorities, especially the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian groups.
