Apply to be a Global Young People’s Convocation Delegate from the Western Jurisdiction 2018

In July 2018, young people from different social, economic, cultural, political, and even theological backgrounds will come together in Johannesburg, South Africa to share their stories with one another at the Global Young People’s Convocation (GYPC).

The GYPC is the global event for United Methodist young people and includes a Legislative Forum, which is the venue for proposing and discussing legislation related to issues of concern to young people. The 2016 General Conference of the UMC approved a proposal to change the legislation part of the GYPC from “assembly” to “forum.” (¶1210 Section 1-2 of the UMC Book of Discipline). This change provides more flexibility about how the legislative work is cared for during the convocation.

Each Jurisdiction or Central Conference is entitled to send voting members to the GYPC: five Youth, five Young Adults, and two Adult Workers. Youth should be 12-18 years old (at the time of the GYPC), and the young adults should be 19-30 years old (at the time of the GYPC).

Applications to be a part of the Western Jurisdiction Delegation have been extended to October 6th. Scholarships, based on need, will be available for voting members.

For questions, contact Rev. David Berkey (dberkey@calpacumc.org).
