Youth Council

The Youth Council in Blackhawk Presbytery will work to support congregations and their youth ministry by helping to reinforce the connectional nature of our denomination. We will do this by promoting better communication between youth leaders and youth groups. Most youth groups in our presbytery tend to be small-ish. As a result, youth in our churches tend to feel like the only Presbyterian youth in the world. We believe that by promoting communication between youth leaders and between youth groups, we can strengthen the ties between churches and be more effective in promoting the Gospel among young people. The ultimate goal behind this is to help develop better youth leadership within our churches, so as to make them a part of thriving congregations now and in the future.
