RECREATION LEADERS

 

JOY! CREATING! DANCING! PLAYING! SINGING! RUNNING!

Being in relationship with one another through recreation is at the core of the Presbyterian Youth Triennium 2019 recreation ministry team’s purpose.  Through God’s sense of play and the enjoyment of being in a community that is inclusive, safe and joyful we seek to welcome all and rejoice in the full life that God has given each of us.
