MN Conference Young Adult Leadership Initiative Retreat 

"Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am." - Parker J. Palmer.

As the first step into our highly anticipated Young Adult Leadership Initiative, the MN Conference UCC is excited to offer a weekend retreat which invites young adults to share time together in a relaxed and reflective setting, exploring the inner wisdom that shapes our identities and our sense of purpose in the world.

This will also be a time to learn more about the YALI and how the conference will walk with committed young adults for the next two years, building on their skills, talents, and passions around faith and justice. They will learn more about the United Church of Christ through meetings with leaders, participate in advocacy training and opportunities, and examin where their faith and personal life intersect to meet their needs and the needs of others.

The Young Adult Leadership Initiative, underwritten by the Ashley Endowment, is available to those 18 years (graduated high school) to 25 years of age.
