2015 SEJ BMCR Youth Harambee – June 24-28
The word harambee is South African in origin and means “Let’s pull together.” Every other year the national office sponsors the National BMCR Youth Harambee. This event’s purpose is to be a celebration of gifts, talents, and willing hearts of ethnic United Methodist youth. These events also focus on helping youth and young adults understand BMCR’s history, purpose, and focus on equipping and supporting Christian youth. Besides great music, praise, drama, dancing, delicious food, prayer and Bible study, youth have opportunities for creative expressions – talent shows, skits, games – mission work, youth-led worship services and activities, and much more. Youth learn leadership qualities that help them become better students and better Christians in a fun, no-pressure, relaxing way. Click here to view a PDF flier with more information.
