What is a registrar? Where do they come from? What do they do? I want to know everything!

Registrars are kind and generous volunteers, who give of their time to register young people and their accompanying adults from their church or presbytery delegation for the Presbyterian Youth Triennium. They come from all over the United States, from Presbyteries and churches; from large and small Presbyteries and large and small churches. They are appointed by the Executive Presbyter, or Head of Staff or Youth Ministry contact person from the Presbytery or church they are representing. They promote Triennium to their church or presbytery and help young people get connected to other young people in their area who want to attend this event. Registrars are organized and gather all of the necessary information and documentation so that young people can attend the Presbyterian Youth Triennium. They, with the help of other adults, organize the travel to and from the Triennium, as well as the pre-event gathering. They make sure that there is a proper ratio of youth to adults. They, along with the National Registrar, help coordinate all of the background checks for adults in their delegation. They help find funding to make the trip as affordable as possible for families. They do so much, but the bottom line is, they help young people get to the Triennium!

We can’t say enough about how grateful we are for our registrars! They are volunteers who take on a part-time job just to make sure that their youth can attend an event where they meet God in a real way, and connect with other youth, in a life-changing experience. They believe that this event is so important that they are willing to take on a hard job, and we cannot say thank you enough!

Thank you, thank you, thank you registrars! You are the best!
