Youth & Young Adult
Rev. Samuel Murillo and Ms. Lissa Belle Ramos Brown
The Youth and Young Adult (YYA) programming for the WMC originates to the 1956 World Methodist Conference when a request was made to include more young people in the delegations. From that time, the programming has evolved into a strongly felt presence in the life of the WMC. The WMC YYA programming primarily focuses on persons ages 18-35, but there is a concern for children and adolescents under 18. Several major Conferences have been sponsored by the WMC to help Methodist/Wesleyan Youth and Young Adults to develop friendships and partnerships for mission and service. You can learn more about specific programs by visiting here.
The YYA Committee provides guidance and helps to set policy for WMC engagement with Youth and Young Adults. The YYA Regional President is elected to articulate the concerns of Youth and Young Adults on the Steering Committee (Executive Board) of the WMC and the Methodist/Wesleyan family at large. The Youth and Young Adult Coordinator is a staff person who conducts the day-to-day work of connecting the YYA programs of the WMC member churches, ensuring that the WMC programming for YYA is implemented.
