Welcome to the Young Adult Festival

November 10, 2014

Being involved in the young adult community is being part of a family.  This family helps us grow by seeing things from a broader perspective.   The young adult community has opened my eyes to see things outside of my community.  This family teaches us new things and helps define us as people.  Aside from […]

General Convention: my Church and my church

November 10, 2014

D038: Why You Should Care

November 10, 2014

Resolution D038 focuses on reaffirming the commitment to become a welcoming church for the Latino/Hispanic community. If passed, this resolution could mean a budget allocation of more than $3 million for Latino/Hispanic development throughout the church.  D038 is significant because of the increase of the Latino/Hispanic population in the U.S. According to the 2008 census, […]
