Over the years YLI's Metro Youth Encounter has sought to gather youth from various churches around metropolitan Detroit, give them intercultural experiences, and help them develop as leaders for the church and world. We're excited today to announce a new plan to accomplish these central components of the Metro Youth Encounter.
Starting this Fall, a new series of 3 larger YOUTH ENCOUNTER RETREATS will take the place of our smaller MYE convenant group experience. These retreats will gather youth together, give workshop space for different ministry tracks (Connectional & Local Church Leadership, Missional Life, Ministry in the City, and Hearing God's Call), AND feature ministry project grant awards of up to $500.
It's our hope that these retreats will be able to celebrate and nurture the already-present energy of youth in ministry in our area and provide a space for hundreds of youth each year to gather, and towitness to the ways in which God is calling them to lead the church right now.
