Young Adult Ministries

We believe in the transforming power of the witness, passion and leadership of young people both within their churches and in the larger community, and we hope to build that power through formation, fellowship and resource sharing.  

We are committed to nourishing the visible leadership of young adults and looking for innovative ways to integrate young people and young adult ministry into all areas of our communal life, at both the local and diocesan level.
