Canada youth becomes biennial event.
"Everybody was quite excited about the idea," said Rev. Helen Smith, convener of the LMA committee and minister at Centennial, Calgary. "Canada Youth is something we're doing very right. We've got this going and it's going well. We should keep it up or step it up."
Since 2000, the Canada Youth conference has been held triennially at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ont. It features programming for teenagers, young people interested in mission and adults involved in youth ministry.
"The church perpetually identifies youth, the mission of the church, and leadership development/equipping as essential values," the LMA said in its announcement.
In October, Canadian Ministries offered each synod a matching grant of $1,000 to help with fundraising for CY.
