    NEJ Mission of Peace (MOP)

    The MISSION OF PEACE to the Philippines 2019, promises to be an outstanding experience! It is the hope of the Northeastern Jurisdictional Council on Youth Ministries (NEJ CYM) that each Conference of our NEJ will participate in the MISSION OF PEACE in this coming year! Please remember that this is a serious and important experience for those who are selected. Each Conference will want to send only the most qualified and responsible people. It is a learning and growing experience for those who are able to deal with differences in countries and cultures in a mature way.

    The Northeastern Jurisdictional Council on Youth Ministries encourages each Conference to choose up to four youth to participate on each MOP. This does not mean that each Conference has to send four....just that each Conference may select up to four qualified youth to participate. Suggestions for alternates may be sent. Thank you for making the selection process both compassionate and discerning.
