Letter and Applications for YLT 2016
Dear CPA Churches,

The Coastal Plains Area Christian Youth Fellowship (High School Youth) Youth Leadership Team is the group that plans, designs and leads the CYF events offered through our Area. The youth and adults on this team plan two weekend events (Retreats), Service Rally, Summer Camp (Conference) and CYLS (YLT leadership Camp) in the summer. This team is a great leadership experience for the youth that are involved.

Each church in our Area is asked and encouraged to send one youth representative from their congregation to be on this team. This representative is chosen by the church they are to represent. It is up to the leadership of each church to pick and verify their member for this team.

We do ask that the youth representative from each church follow the following guidelines:

  • In 9th grade or higher in 2016-2017 school year (although we encourage students who have already been to 1 year of CYF camp)
  • Currently enrolled in High School
  • Involved in your church and youth program
  • Willing to make meetings and the events that are scheduled throughout the year – We do understand high school conflicts

Applications will be due to the Area office by June 1, 2016.  Original forms must be mailed and submitted to the Area office but you are welcome to, additionally, scan and email your applications to the Area office at cpa@cpadisciples.org since snail mail can sometimes become delayed.

YLT is made up of representatives from each member church, five cluster representatives, and 6 adults from the Area. If you are interested in being a YLT adult, please email youth@cpadisciples.org or cpa@cpadisciples.org.

The Regional Representative and Cluster Reps will be contacted and announced by June 9. Interviews will be conducted by phone.

Please pray about your representation on this team through a youth from your church and prepare them to become a vital part of our Area high school youth programming.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at youth@cpadisciples.org

Peace,

Rev. Heather Tolleson, Ministry Coordinator
