Enthusiasm and energy are all that's required for you to help make a national youth event hosted by the California-Nevada Annual Conference a success. If you can give a portion of your time, from an hour, to a day, to a week – whatever your availability – thousands of youth from all over the country will benefit!
Conference Director of Young People's and Camping Ministries, Kelly Newell, says approximately 200 volunteers are needed for the Youth 2011 event, July 27-31 at the Sacramento Convention Center.
Youth 2011 is the national youth gathering for the United Methodist Church, which happens only every four years and is the largest single gathering of UMC youth in existence. This four-day conference brings top United Methodist leaders (including Cal-Nevada's Rev. Motoe Yamada!) and the best ecumenical speakers, bands, and other talent together with thousands of UM youth from all around the nation, for what is sure to be a life-changing event.
Your contribution to Youth 2011, in the form of an allotment of your time, is vital to the success of the event and is sure to bless you bountifully. And with a vast array of volunteer tasks available, finding a place to plug in and help will not present a problem.
