This summer, young adults from across the Northern and Southern Provinces will have an opportunity to explore Moravian mission roots as part of the 2019 Moravian Young Adult Convo.

Scheduled for June 25-July 2, 2019, this year’s Convo, “Exploring Moravian Mission Roots,” will take place on St. John and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. During Convo 2019, young adults ages 18-26 years will walk in the steps of the first Moravian missionaries and explore our “roots”; spend time in hands-on mission work; visit Moravian congregations; and enjoy island hospitality.  The Convo program will be led by Bishop Chris Giesler, director of mission engagement for the Board of World Mission.

Cost for this year’s Convo is $1850 and includes most meals, housing, travel in St. Thomas, a variety of activities and tours and Convo 2019 T-shirt. A non-refundable deposit of $700 (US) and completed registration form is due by January 27, 2019. Find the form at Note that travel to and from St. Thomas is the responsibility of the individual and not covered in the cost of Convo 2019.
