Colombia Youth Convention

posted 14 Feb 2018, 21:32 by June Miller, MCA Communications

Mennonite Church Canada partners with the Iglesia Menonita de Colombia by contributing finances to numerous programs of which youth ministry is one. 

About 90 youth participated in the National Youth Camp held in Cachipay, Colombia at the beginning of January. Youth from every region of the Mennonite Church in Colombia (Iglesia Menonita de Colombia) took part in the weekend event.

Four different Colombian young adults and Yalilie Caballero, the president of Colombia Mennonite Church, provided engaging input for youth on the theme of “Walking with Jesus” based on the Road to Emmaus story in Luke 24. Youth were very receptive to these topics and seemed motivated to go back into their local communities and share what they learned in their home churches. Along with times of worship, teaching and small group discussion, fun times of fellowship and community building were also had including a challenge course, capture the flag, crafts and board games (Dutch Blitz is a huge hit!), a campfire with marshmallows, and a talent show— “Meno-night.”
