If we believe that the faith development of our youth, as well as providing them with events and activities that will help them grow personally and spiritually is important, we need to support our words with our actions by providing guidance for planning and leading these events.  Please consider using your gifts and talents to help our PEVA youth.

If you want to make a difference and have a voice in the planning of the events for YOU, sign up to be part of the leadership team.  Make your voice heard, learn leadership skills, meet new friends, spend time at camp and most importantly grow in your faith by becoming part of the leadership team!  Use the gifts and talents God has given you to help others.
