We are a young adult led, clergy supported event intended to connect Orthodox Christians from across the country for a unique weekend of faith and fellowship.
Young adults are part of a community within the Church that is unique to them. We want this conference to be an opportunity for young adults to come together to discuss our struggles and remember we are not alone in them. Through a series of speakers and social events, our aim is to create an atmosphere of safety and support while emphasizing our shared experiences in our walk with Christ. We will focus conversations on everyday issues that are faced by typical people and how those issues impact our Faith.
This is an annual event meant to compliment a year-round calendar of ministry within the Metropolis of Denver- curated by young adults for young adults. Our hope is to build a strong community across the Metropolis and the country that continues to come together to experience life in the Church.
If we don’t take charge of our Faith, who will?
With Love in Christ,
The Metropolis of Denver YA Steering Committee
