Global Youth Summit Grant
An opportunity for young adults, ages 18-30
Next summer will be rich with opportunities to engage our brothers and sisters in Christ! Central District Conference's annual meeting is being moved up to June 11-13, and will be hosted by the Goshen/Elkhart CDC congregations. The Annual Meeting will take place on the campus of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Indiana. Mennonite Church USA's biennial convention is in Kansas City, Missouri from June 30-July 5. And then, Mennonite World Conference is in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania from July 21-26. For those of us who enjoy fellowship with the wider church, it's going to be a summer full of rich interactions! Congregations should have received packets with information about Mennonite World Conference, and you can also look here: www.mwc-cmm.org.
CDC is hoping to encourage participation in MWC by sponsoring young adults to attend the Global Youth Summit (GYS). Just prior to MWC Assembly, GYS, a gathering of young adults, ages 18-30, at nearby Messiah College from July 17-19, is described by MWC as "An oasis for young leaders of the church," meeting together around the theme, "Called to Share: My Gifts, Our Gifts." Information and registration is here: www.mwc-cmm.org/gys.
In an effort to encourage young adults to attend the GYS, CDC is offering a $500 grant to six (6) young adults, ages 18-30. Selections will be based on achieving a balance of ethnic diversity, gender, and geography. Expectations for grant recipients include:
