Two Young Adult Volunteers from MUP

Two churches in Missouri Union Presbytery are definitely doing something right! Both Trinity Presbyterian Church in Columbia and First Presbyterian Church in Jefferson City have members who are participating in the YAV or Young Adult Volunteer Program. YAVS typically have a year long experience for persons aged 18-30 to participate in direct service and service learning, working with local ministries and agencies. While doing so, they live simply and engage in an intentional Christian community and grow in personal discipleship. 

Daniel Edmonds, from Trinity PC will begin serving in Atlanta, Georgia. Daniel will put his faith into practice through living in community, exploring urban issues, developing a contemplative life and serving the city of Atlanta. He will work in agencies near downtown Atlanta that seek to impact and advocate for positive change in the city.
Laura Robinette will be serving in Hollywood, CA in the neighborhood ministry program out of La Casa de la Comunidad. This site seeks young adults to serve and learn with the people of Hollywood, to engage in intentional Christian community and personal discipleship, to work with local ministries and agencies and to explore urban, multicultural ministry as a vocation and calling.
