Presbyterian Youth and Triennium and Becoming a Matthew 25 Church:
The Office of Presbyterian Youth and Triennium is launching during an exciting season of mission in the PMA – “Becoming a Matthew 25 Church”; seeking to develop vitality within our churches, eradicate poverty and eliminate systemic racism. We believe that young Presbyterians are already passionate about and active IN the bringing about these mission priorities.
We are thrilled to announce that the 2025 Presbyterian Youth Triennium will take place on July 28-31, 2025 in Louisville, KY. It will take place at the Kentucky International Convention Center and surrounding hotels – all located very close to the Presbyterian Center in downtown Louisville. More info coming in 2024!
