Mennonite Church Canada Youth Delegates 2017
You can help support youth and members of congregations who may require financial assistance to attend the Special Delegate Assembly on Oct. 13 -15, 2017. This invitation to give generously is in partnership with Emerging Voices Initiative (EVI).
A recurring theme of EVI’s cross-Canada tour in 2016-17 was the importance of encouraging youth to be involved in area and national church initiatives. EVI will host a Youth Delegation Program for high school students to imagine the church of the future in a multi-faith world challenged by bullying, racism, and inequality.
Participants will get acquainted with the Future Directions Task Force proposal on Friday evening, after the opening session, preparing them to participate in the discussion on Saturday. On Saturday evening after the closing session, there will be a time of debriefing our experiences and looking forward. The weekend will be infused with snacks, late nights, and live tweeting.
Your financial support will: Help financially support youth attendance and demonstrate that they are valuable members of our church with an important voice; send an encouraging message to those who otherwise could not afford to attend.
Our goal is $20,000. Thanks to two generous supporters, we already have $5,000 in seed funding.
