“WE ARE ONE”

ANNUAL YOUTH CONFERENCE

2017 and 2019 SPRING RETREAT (ages 11-25)

The above is an outline for the next four years. The workshops will be quarterly as well as incorporated into the annual conferences. The workshops will be bible centered to provide additional bible enrichment received from their home churches. In order to build the youth fellowship of churches within PEKBA, various churches will host the workshops, fellowships and mission projects throughout the regions inviting their fellowship of churches. The goal is to have the host church provide the space and refreshments. The workshops will be facilitated by experienced Christian young adults providing an open and fun environment receptive to learning. Each workshop, mission project and fellowship will assist in developing our youth into self-sufficient Christians who are not bashful about their beliefs, willing to evangelize, promote family values, lead and work in ministry in their respective churches, associations, conventions and communities all while preparing them to for college life and/or to be productive and concerned citizens.
