If this summer’s Presbyterian Youth Triennium is any indication, more young people are showing an overwhelming interest in critical topics that intersect faith and social justice, such as environmental racism.
From the opening call to the closing benediction and commissioning—exploding in a surprise shower of colorful confetti—Saturday morning’s worship at the 2016 Presbyterian Youth Triennium was a fitting close to an event intentionally designed to send young people out to change the world.
Another upbeat worship service brought together more than 4,700 attendees at the Presbyterian Youth Triennium being held this week on the campus of Purdue University. Sponsored by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, the event’s 2016 theme is “GO!”
The Rev. Dr. Perryn Rice, senior pastor of Lake Highlands Presbyterian Church—a joint congregational witness of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas—couldn’t have written his credentials as the closing preacher at the Presbyterian Youth Triennium any better.
The Rev. Dr. Alice Ridgill, founding pastor of New Faith Presbyterian Church in Greenwood, South Carolina, will deliver Thursday afternoon’s sermon at the 2016 Presbyterian Youth Triennium. Preaching on the theme of “Teach Me the Way I Should Go,” Ridgill’s sermon follows the “GO!” theme and scriptures guiding the content of the conference.
Presbyterian Youth Triennium registration is still underway, with a May 31, 2016 early-bird registration deadline approaching for the July 19-23 event held on the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
