In July 2018 (July 18, 2018 – July 22, 2018), young people from different social, economic, cultural, political, and even theological backgrounds will come together in Johannesburg, South Africa to share their stories with one another at the Global Young People’s Convocation (GYPC).
The GYPC is the global event for United Methodist young people. Applications to be a part of the Western Jurisdiction Delegation are due on September 29, 2017. Scholarships, based on need, will be available for voting members.
Each Jurisdiction or Central Conference is entitled to send voting members to the GYPC: five Youth, five Young Adults, and two Adult Workers. Youth should be 12-18 years old (at the time of the GYPC), and the young adults should be 19-30 years old (at the time of the GYPC).
