Youth commissioners programme – GA2018


We were greatly encouraged by the way young adult commissioners engaged in the general assembly last year. So after the successful pilot, the PYM team is officially launching the PYM youth commissioner programme.

We are looking for young adults aged 18-30, who are self-assured and have a mature Christian faith. These successful candidates will be expected to engage in the church’s national, regional and local courts from March 2018- September 2020 attending:

  • Online training (see example video)
  • at least 4 of their church’s Session or Church council meetings before and after GA (8 in total)
  • at least 2 Presbytery Gathering (where possible) before and after GA (4 in total)
  • the entire GA 2018 conference (3-7 October 2018)

Recommend any suitable potential youth commissioners to your regional youth coordinator.  Each presbytery has six positions available for youth commissioners for next year’s GA.
