Today in the PC-USA Mission Yearbook

The Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is a daily devotional with 365 inspiring mission stories that come from next door and all across the globe. It inspires thousands of Presbyterians daily as they uphold the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in intercessory prayer. How often have you wondered, where are the young adults in the PC(USA)? Wonder no longer. The 2014 Presbyterian Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is devoted to the theme of young adults in the church. Its stories, many told by young adults, lift up how Presbyterians of all ages are engaging and joining with Presbyterian young adults in reforming the church for Christ’s mission.

Now, young adults go off to college and in many instances never return to church, because the church has not touched their lives in a compelling way.

Flint River Presbytery and its 47 congregations are committed to the young adults within presbytery bounds. Flint River invests 12 percent of its budget in three campus ministries. It doesn’t assume these ministries will be creating lifelong Presbyterians, but it knows lives are being changed.
