Applications Open for YAV Program, Mission Opportunity for Young Adults

Nassau has a fantastic mission opportunity for young adults between the ages of 19 and 30!

Explore the possibility of serving with other young adults for a year (August 2017 – July 2018) at an approved site in the US. This opportunity intentionally offers travel and vocational discernment in community, serving God and others by putting your faith into action. Placements range from Boston to Hollywood, Glasgow to the Amazon, Miami to Montana, and many choices in between.

Check out the YAV website, but if you want to talk to someone who knows this program, call the church and ask for Joyce MacKichan Walker, Minister of Education, who can both interpret the YAV program for you and put you in touch with former YAVs who have served from this congregation.
