Presbytery of the James's Youth Council (POJ YoCo) develops youth leadership through learning, volunteer service, and fellowship. We plan and host youth events for the Presbytery of the James. Participants are high school students who are members of a Presbytery of the James congregation or have a connection to Camp Hanover, such as participation in the Pathfinders program or a youth retreat.

How Will You Support Youth Ministry in 2021?

Colleen Earp, the presbytery’s associate for youth ministry, offers the following ideas for congregations:
  • Invite youth to lead worship and speak out on issues they care about;
  • Ordain youth as ruling elders in your congregation;
  • Reach out to young people in your midst to encourage them
Connect with Colleen to brainstorm how to support young leaders in learning and in fellowship in your particular context.
