    Calling All Young Adults!

    Are you part of a young adult ministry in Upper New York? We want to hear about it!

    The UNY Young Adult Council is collecting information about young adult (age 18-35) ministries in our Conference, whether they're young adult specific or just happen to include lots of young people. We want to spread the word about existing opportunities and help new young adult ministries get started.

    Send us a DM on Facebook or Instagram or shoot us an email to tell us about your group!
