This summer’s Mennonite Church USA convention will feature a new program, Step Up, aimed to get youth engaged in the discussions and work of the larger Mennonite Church. Each conference is encouraged to nominate three regular church attendees, incoming sophomores in high school and older, to be involved in this program. Youth will receive preparation for being a part of the delegate assembly and will sit at assigned tables during the delegate assembly. They will also debrief with other Step Up participants afterward. This is a unique opportunity to encourage youth interested in church leadership and in the workings of the larger church. If you would like to nominate a youth to participate in this program, please contact Alysa Short at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1.
