Join Youth Council!

If you are a young person in grades 9-12 (or if you know one) and you have an interest in youth and church leadership, we need you! It’s that time of year again when we are taking applications for the Presbytery Youth Council.

The Presbytery of Coastal Carolina Youth Council is a unique opportunity for 9th – 12th graders to gain (and share) valuable leadership skills, learn more about the Presbyterian Church (USA), get to know other youth from the Presbytery, and serve the church in an important and challenging way.

Our Youth Council currently plans several events and there will be youth activities happening in each community.

A few things to make note of as you apply for Youth Council:

  • Each member is asked to serve a two year term. You may “renew” when your two year term is up, or you may rotate off after one year if necessary.
  • All members must be present at the October Presbytery meeting where we as a council are installed.
  • Members are asked to be present for at least two youth council events. This includes planning meetings before events. We will schedule those closer to our events.
  • Applications were Due at the First of August but Contact Erin anyway…

If you have any questions, or if you are an adult wishing to serve on the Youth Council, please contact Erin Wehrmeister, or (910) 578-7724 .

One thought on “Youth – Presbytery Youth Council”

  1. Hi,
    My name is Megan Petero and I am the youth intern for the summer at Community Presbyterian Church in Pinehurst, NC. I am currently organizing the youth calendar and was hoping to include youth events sponsored by the Presbytery of Coastal Carolina. I can’t seem to find a calendar of 2019-2020 youth events on this website. Could someone direct me to where I could find a calendar or email one to me?
