In 1980, I was serving on the Youth Committee in Cincinnati Presbytery. We heard about this Triennium event that would be held at Indiana University. We didn’t know much about it, but a group of youth and adults stepped out in faith and we went.
More than 4,000 youth and their chaperones clearly energized by having arrived at Purdue University for the 2019 Presbyterian Youth Triennium worshiped together Tuesday night through movement, singing, prayer, confession — and by hearing thoughtful, heartfelt preaching.
As the Rev. Rob Mueller of Divine Redeemer Presbyterian Church in San Antonio put the final touches on the Global Partners exhibit space at the Presbyterian Youth Triennium Tuesday morning, he was experiencing both joy and anguish due to circumstances on the U.S. southern border.
Presbyterian Youth Triennium staff and volunteers prepared for the Tuesday arrival of thousands of young people by worshiping together Monday evening and then remembering their baptisms and God’s unceasing mercy in a unique way.
People attending next week’s Presbyterian Youth Triennium on the campus of Purdue University will be among the first to see a new webinar series addressing one of the most important issues of our day: gun violence.
Since 1998, children ages 6 to 12 have been gathering at Littlefield Presbyterian Church in Dearborn, Michigan, to work together to build peace at home, at school, in their communities and around the world.
Headlining the Presbyterian Youth Triennium’s music ministry is The Nettletons — PYT’s house worship band formed especially for this vibrant five-day youth-centered event. And while it’s not unusual to have a worship band at a church event, putting a band together for an event that occurs every three years can be a challenge.
“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for everyone.” — 1 Timothy 2:1
