FX Youth Event at Mount Hermon Postponed

October 25, 2012

After consultation with our event partners, the California-Nevada Annual Conference's Committee on Young People's Ministry has decided to postpone the FX West Event, "The Journey," that was to be held in November. The event will be rescheduled at a to-be-determined date in the spring.  
The postponement is due to low registration numbers and firm commitments we had made to our host, Mount Hermon, and our program facilitators, Tsunami Ministries. We had plenty of inquiries, and many who said they were interested, but with less than a week before we had to provide firm numbers, the committee felt that it was not prudent to go forward at this time. 
The feedback we received also had indicated that churches needed more time for planning and fundraising, and felt they had not been notified about the event in a timely matter.
The committee now will turn its attention to selecting a new date, and making sure that the right people have the information to plan for this exciting event. Last week, the same event in North Carolina had 1,000 youth in attendance! Go to www.tsunamiministries.com to view highlights.  
If you would like to be in the electronic "loop" of information around the new details of this event, please email me at kellyn@calnevumc.org – and please let me know what church you're from!
