Youth and Young Adult Ministry (YAYA)

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 and Young Adults.

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.

PEVA MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL RETREAT Click Here for Flyer

"When did we see you?" This theme speaks to the idea that God has called us to bold, compassionate, action yet, too often we are frozen by fear, and do nothing. How do we know when to stand by, and when to act? How can we tell where God is calling us? This, and other questions, will be discussed at this retreat. This theme was chosen with the PC(USA) Matthew 25 Movement and the theme for Presbyterian Youth Triennium in mind. We will use the Matthew 25 passage to ground ourselves in this theme.

When: March 18-20, 2022
Where: Great Wolf Lodge (Williamsburg, VA)
Who: Middle and High School Students and their amazing Adult Advisors
 
Cost: $185 per person (Scholarships are available, as needed);
