Young adults in the Uniting Church are not leaders for tomorrow but leaders today. We celebrate their gifts, vision, passion and wisdom.
Over 120 young adults from across the Uniting Church gathered at the most recent National Young Adult Leaders Conference. They spoke about what they value and hope for in the Uniting Church
NYALC and other events like it bring together young adults from the many cultures that make up the UCA – to encourage them in faith, to hear each other’s voices, to grow together in Christian community. These are powerful, transformative events because the Spirit draws people as one body in Christ. It is a taste of who we are becoming as the people of God.
In our 40th year, may we as a church encourage young people as leaders to have a voice, to make decisions, to challenge our structures, to shape our budgets, to dream dreams and see visions, to be prophets and evangelists and pastors and teachers and mission leaders.
All of this is us.
