A new Web site for young adult ministry in the Synod is up and running at http://www.lcmsyoungadultministry.org.
Sponsored by the Synod’s seven-member Young Adult Ministry Advisory Committee, the site offers:
- monthly blog articles by young adults about their ministry, culture, and faith.
- information about servant opportunities, including the committee’s first “LEAD” servant event, held May 31-June 5 in New Orleans.
- book reviews about young adult ministry and culture.
- twitter feeds on the activities of the advisory committee.
Jessica Bordeleau, a member of the committee, told Reporter that the group’s two-pronged goal is “to enable congregations to build a culture where young adults are able to fully participate in the life of the church, and to enable young adults to become an integral part of the church community, living out their faith in a global context.”
Bordeleau is coordinator for Lutheran Youth Fellowship and Young Adult Ministry with LCMS District and Congregational Services — Youth Ministry.
A virtual note paper-clipped to the site’s home page describes the advisory committee and its work, as follows:
“We are a movement of LCMS young adults reaching out to our peers with the love and light of Christ. We know that no top-down institutional program is going to impact the heart of a young adult like a community of believers living out the love of Christ in their daily interactions, … ready, willing, and able to be servant leaders who point our friends, communities, and world to the love of Christ in relatable, relevant, real ways.”
