San Diego UMC Young Adults

By: Raymond Swavely

Thanks to District Superintendent Rev John Farley, Rev Eric Smith , Rev John Lurvery and lay members, there was a meeting of the Young Adult leaders from the south district. Over 10 churches were represented along with interseted lay-members. As it turned out, most of the young adult leaders were youth leaders and many wore other hats such as family ministries.

From the meeting a district e-mail communication list has been developed. The e-mail list is comprised of people at the meeting and being expanded to include all young adult workers in the south district. A web site for the south district young adults is in the making and will hopefully be completed by the end of june. A District Coordinator has been established to help the young adult workers and Spencer Topham has stepped forward into that position.

Some other ideas that came out of the meeting were a leaders and young adult retreat at camp cedar glen, lesson materials, smaller groups going to larger group events, district events and just getting together for support.

Another meeting will be scheduled after annual conference to plan and get ideas for the future. If you would like more information, or would like to get involved,  contact Raymond Swavely 619-743-8341
