July 1-6, 2017, youth from all over North America will gather in Washington, D.C. for the 20th Moravian Youth Convocation. This year, after entertaining multiple requests from youth, the planning team has elected to open Convo 2017 registration to youth who have completed grades 8-12.
This Moravian Youth Convo program will be led by the Rev. Dr. Deb Appler and Ms. Sharon Brown. Worship will be coordinated and led by the Rev. Brian Dixon and the Rev. Bevon White. While in the metro area, participants will he housed at The University of Maryland and travel to The Washington Mall for a variety of events including but not limited to program, visits to museums and memorials and Independence Day fireworks. In addition, Convo 2017 will worship with D.C.-area Moravian congregations, participate in Bible study and small group sessions that deal with the issues of today, and serve in mission as they reach out to the local community and beyond. Youth Convo offers an opportunity to create powerful friendships, affirm Christian principles and build life-long memories.
The cost of Convo is $800 and includes the program itself called ‘Witness,” a look at race, today’s reality, and the Bible; July 4th Fireworks on the Mall; Convo 2017 T-Shirt; a service mission opportunity; worship; travel once you arrive in the Washington, D.C. area; housing from July 1-6; and meals beginning with dinner on July 1 through breakfast on July 6.
