    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    news article

    UNY Camp & Retreat Ministries seeking youth nominations for Director’s Invitational

    July 18, 2018 / By UNY Communications

    Many of our youth around the Conference are leading Sunday school, youth events, local and global mission projects, serving on church committees, and leading school and community activities. They have demonstrated leadership potential, but often lack confidence, training, direction, or opportunity to develop their gifts. Soon they will be adults working in a variety of careers, be parents, and spiritual leaders. We recognize the opportunity the church has to guide them into their adult roles by offering them the skills that will enrich their faith, build their confidence and teach them how to use their potential.

    Director’s Invitational (DI) is a five-day, spiritual leadership seminar, held August 5-9th, at Casowasco Camp & Retreat Center, developed to help youth recognize their style of leadership and to develop their own unique God-given gifts. Nominate a youth ages 14 through 2018 hugh-school graduate for this program by August 1. Churches and individuals making nominaions will be invoiced for the $375 program fee once the individual nominated accepts an invitation to attend by returning the registration form.
