Synod Funds Available for 2019 Youth Triennium

Synod scholarships of $100 are available for each youth participant and chaperone attending the 2019 Presbyterian Youth Triennium.

If you or someone you know would like a Synod scholarship, contact your presbytery and let them know that you wish to attend Triennium.

Presbyteries must present their list identifying youth participants and chaperones to the Synod Stated Clerk by the deadline of May 14, 2019. The Synod will send a check to the presbytery for all people who are attending. We hope that many will take advantage of the opportunity to attend Triennium.

Youth Previously Nurtured Turn to Nurture a New Generation of Leaders

With the guidance of the Rev. Victor Aloyo, Pastor at la Iglesia Presbiteriana Nuevas Fronteras in Plainfield, NJ, Acción Presbiteriana is being revamped to meet those needs. “In conversations with parents and ministers in churches that are in survival mode, we have come together as a larger community to develop a platform that is more relevant to this generation of youth and emerging leaders,” says Aloyo. “We hear so many reports about how many youth are leaving the church, and we know that many emerging leaders are dissatisfied and disillusioned with the structure of the church that impedes growth and relationship building. So we are doing our part to walk alongside youth and young adults.”
