Seattle Presbytery’s Young Adult Advisory Delegate (YAAD)
221st General Assembly

The 221st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) will meet June 14 – 21, 2014, in Detroit, Michigan.  Each presbytery is invited to send one person as a Young Adult Advisory Delegate (YAAD) at General Assembly expense.  The YAAD will be seated with the presbytery’s teaching elder and ruling elder commissioners on the floor of the Assembly.  The YAAD has the right to speak, and to vote in an advisory capacity on the floor of the Assembly.  YAADs are full voting members of the General Assembly Committee to which he/she is assigned.

Being a YAAD is a great way to connect with other young Presbyterians from across the country, and to learn about the full scope of the ministry and mission of the PC(USA).  YAADs have an extensive program planned just for them, in addition to regular Assembly business.

The Youth Advisory Delegate must be 17 – 23 years old the day the General Assembly convenes (6/14) and an active member for at least a year in a congregation within Seattle Presbytery.  Having some experience in the Presbyterian Church beyond the local congregation is a real plus for a YAAD.  The candidate should have sufficient personal maturity to be able to function independently and responsibly for nine days with other youth and adults, and to participate faithfully in the many meetings and activities associated with the General Assembly meeting.

A YAAD nominee must be endorsed by the Session of their congregation.

Nomination deadline is January 6, 2014.
