The World Methodist Council has launched a new website for its youth and young adult work. The site, located at http://youth.worldmethodistcouncil.org, is a way for younger persons to learn, experience, and become a part of the global Methodist/Wesleyan family.
While focusing on people ages 18-35, the site has resources for all age groups and is for any person concerned with helping young people become a greater part of our global witness. In addition to information on WMC Youth and Young Adult programming, the site includes a comprehensive directory of World Methodist Council member church Youth and Young Adult as well as resource links to ecumenical partners, relevant international organizations, training resources and potential donors.
The web portal will also host Devotional blogs, which will allow young people to share their thoughts with a worldwide audience as we strive to embrace the rich diversity of our family. In her devotional inaugurating the website, WMC Youth and Young Adult President Rev. Lauren Matthew stated: “I am hoping that in this space, we will be able to share these stories, that we would be able to inspire each other. In particular I hope that we share stories of how young people: children, youth and young adults from across our great Wesleyan family are living out their faith journeys.”
We are excited to continue striving to fulfill our calling to make the world our parish!
(For more information on how your young people can participate in this opportunity, please email Youth and Young Adult Coordinator John Thomas III: firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be turned in by September 25th for consideration).
