Minute for Mission: Young Adult Volunteer Commissioning Sunday

On the last day of Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) orientation, we are sent off to be commissioned at churches in the area. Several churches in the area agree to host small groups of YAVs for worship where we are commissioned for our year of service, followed by a meal and conversations. We as YAVs come as we are, bringing our whole selves, exhausted from the past week of orientation, to a table of strangers, to share our intentions for our year of service and what we have already begun learning during the first week.

The relationship was fostered through Lehigh Presbytery’s Worldwide Ministries mission efforts.
