This summer we will be sending 15 high school students to a youth conference at Montreat. Montreat is a Presbyterian Conference Center in Asheville, NC, where the lives of many youth and adults have been transformed over the years. It opens its doors to Presbyterian Youth for 6 weeks over the summer to come and explore their faith at the Montreat Youth Conference. This conference is a unique gathering of young people from all over the country for a week of study, worship, and recreation. Activities include morning energizers, music, keynote, small group meetings, afternoon recreation activities, and evening worship. Montreat Youth Conference 2018 has a theme of “Lift Every Voice” and will strive to be a place where authenticity, community, connection, and God’s truth thrive. It will seek to be an inclusive place where each voice can be heard and where each heart can be molded; where change is invited, challenge is expected, and where all are embraced. The Montreat Youth Conference is designed for high school students, entering freshmen through graduated seniors, and their adult leaders. It is a unique gathering of young people from all over the country for a week of study, worship, and recreation. Please keep our 15 high school students and their leaders in your prayers the week of July 7-14.
