Are you bringing your youth or young adult group to Young People in Mission?
Then listen up!
We are so happy that you and your student ministry are involved with Young People in Mission! It a pleasure for our office to be so engaged in this event, because like you, we truly believe that discipling each new generation during their formative years is the key to the future of the Christian mission field.
You, of course, know your group better than anyone: the dreamers, the doers, the thinkers, the creatives, the speakers, the motivators, the leaders. It is an honor to guide these young people and help them discern how they could use their talents, which is why we wanted to tell you a little bit more about the Young People in Mission Design Team.
The Design Team is open to any student who is entering 9th grade, but has not yet completed their first year of college. It is comprised of a Chair, Vice Chair and 5 others from around the Jurisdiction who take on the responsibility of dreaming up what each year’s event looks like. While we here at UMVIM, SEJ handle much of the administrative side of things and provide support, it’s these dynamic young people who translate their vision and ideas into reality. Who else is better to engage students than their own peers after all? Not only is being on the Design Team a lot of fun, but it’s also an incredibly opportunity for them to make new friends, work on a team, network with key people within the church, build their confidence, and even their résumé!
Members of this year’s Design Team will of course be very present at the event. We encourage you and anyone in your group who might be interested to take the time to talk to them a little more about their role and their reasons for serving.
Please take a look at and share this short video that profiles this year’s team and pray about identifying those in your group who might be interested in this opportunity. It will give you and them a great perspective on what it’s like to be on this team. You can also read more about the Design Team on our blog post here.
