At the beginning of 2012, the Reverend Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, PC(USA) Director for Public Witness identified two significant challenges for the PC(USA) Office of Public Witness. The first aimed to show what this ministry does. That is, the OPW seeks to serve the whole church, not just a self-selected affinity group. The second was how to balance the richness of our past with the promise of our future. Nelson wrote, “It is clear to me that outreach to, and service with, young adults is essential to meeting both challenges.”
