While sitting in on some of the retreat and listening to people describe the ups and downs of their ministries, I had one thought over and over again: Thank you to all who minister with young adults. To steal a phrase from Rev. Emily Miller (who does recruitment for the Young Adult Volunteer Program), “thank you for being church.”
We are here to support and uplift you whether you are a young adult or are ministering to young adults. The stories and resources in this newsletter are places to start. If you have questions or concerns or just want to know a bit more about one of the PC(USA) young adult ministries, you’re welcome to reach out to me.
Thank you for being church,
Rev. Emily Morgan
Young Adult Ministry Specialist & UKirk Communications Director

Military chaplains aren’t the only people who minister to these young adults. Here’s our Quick Sheet about reaching out to military young adults.

As real as the pain is to watch and hear, perhaps even more painful is that fact that, in the year of our Lord 2015, we remain numb to the subtle and blatant acts of violence still carried out against various communities of people around our country and our world.” Read more “Draw Near” is a new Lenten devotional to help you journey with Jesus to his cross and resurrection with the help of the book of Psalms.
