YOUTH CONNECTION of New Covenant Presbytery
Welcome to the YOUTH CONNECTION of New Covenant Presbytery. Through the Youth Connection, this presbytery seeks to provide a comprehensive youth ministry for young people and the adults who work with them. We aspire to connect youth to one another, the whole church, and the whole world through faith in Jesus Christ.
These pages are designed to introduce you to the youth ministry of the Presbytery of New Covenant and provide opportunities and resources to assist you in your ministry with young people.
The Youth Connection is always looking for new ways to keep our presbytery's youth connected. Keep an eye on this page for new opportunities or email us an idea! firstname.lastname@example.org
Calling ALL YOUTH GROUPS of our presbytery!

Join us for fun and faith-filled weekends at Camp Cho-Yeh this spring!

Youth will also participate in a mission project and explore ways to connect with God in our Spirituality Center. This year’s theme is IGNITE: A Life on Fire!

2017 Youth Mission Project
The youth of our presbytery will be making mats for the homeless at their spring retreats, called Conclaves. These mats are made from plastic bags that are cut into strips and looped together to be crocheted into a mat. They are light weight, water -roof, and actually have a cushion feel to them. It takes 500 to 700 bags to make one sleeping mat 36 x 72 inches. So… we need YOUR HELP in collecting plastic bags! Plastic bags should be collected at the local church and then brought to Conclaves by youth groups. Contact Rev. Caressa Murray with questions at email@example.com.
