Advocating for Young People’s Representation at the Central Conference Session
By Mighty Rasing
Central Conference sessions can seem intimidating and scary. Adults speak on the floor debating many different issues being faced by the church. The parliamentary procedures, also known as Robert’s Rules, can sound very formal, serious and complicated.
It is no wonder a lot of young people prefer to stay away from these conference sessions that make decisions for the whole church. Young people have the energy, passion, and creativity to contribute meaningfully in this process of Christian conferencing. The problem is, they don’t usually get a chance to participate in the highest decision-making body of the church in their country or central conference.
