The Young Adult Steering Committee met in September to discuss and plan the upcoming 2017 Young Adult Conference. The committee includes: Rudy Amaya (Pasadena, Calif.), Jessie Houff (Hurleyville, N.Y.), Amanda McLearn-Montz (Iowa City, Iowa), Renee Neher (Lombard, Ill.), Kyle Remnant (Cincinnati, Ohio), and Mark Pickens (Harrisburg, Pa.).
Young Adult Conference will take place May 26-28, 2017, at Camp Harmony, near Hooversville, Pa. It offers people ages 18-35 a chance to enjoy fellowship, worship, recreation, Bible study, service projects, and more–all with other fantastic young adults!
Registration for this event is $150, which includes food, lodging, and programming. A non-refundable deposit of $75 is due within two weeks of registering. Scholarships are available. Upon request, a letter will be sent to the young adult’s congregation asking to provide a $75 scholarship. Scholarships are also available to actively serving BVSers.
Online registration opens at 12 noon (central time) on Jan. 20, 2017, at www.brethren.org/yac . Theme and speaker information, as well as a schedule, are coming soon!
