ABOUT

Every four years, youth from throughout the United Methodist Church gather for four days of discipleship, fun, and fellowship at the YOUTH event. The event is filled with interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service opportunities, and fellowship time. Expect inspiration, support, and challenges to authentically experience what it means to be United Methodist. The South Georgia Conference will be taking students from our conference to the event via charter bus. For more information, contact Group Leader Rev. Melissa Traver at melissa.s.traver@icloud.com.

WHO

Youth who are rising 6th graders through graduating 12th graders as of the 2019-20 school year are eligible to attend. YOUTH 2019 is for all youth in those age ranges who are part of the United Methodist Connection. Adult leaders must be at least 21 years old or older, and preferably have a 5-year age difference between themselves and the youth they are chaperoning. The recommended ratio is 1 adult for every 7 youth. Every group who comes should have a minimum of 2 adult leaders to meet basic Safe Sanctuaries requirements.
