Youth Advisory Team

Youth Advisory Team

The Youth Advisory Team (we call it the Youth A-Team) is a team of youth, young adults, and adults that gather each fall and spring to grow in faith, community and leadership abilities, and to help the Presbytery make disciples of Jesus Christ through events, conferences, and mission opportunities!

Every year the Youth A-Team plans a fall Junior High Youthquake, a winter Youth at Presbytery, a Spring Senior High Youthquake, and several summer opportunities. Youth A-Team events are open to all youth in Arkansas!

Upcoming A-Team Events

2020 Summer Trips

Summer Trip Covid-19 Update:
Unfortunately, the Youth, Young Adult, and College Committee of the Presbytery of Arkansas does not feel it wise to travel out of state right now because of Covid-19. Therefore, we have canceled our 2020 summer trips to Junior High Jubilee and to Montreat. Trip participants, you should have an email from Brianne about your deposits. Please reach out if you have not seen it.
Here’s the Good News!
Montreat has moved online and the A-Team is covering the $100 a person cost to make Montreat@Home FREE to any student and adult leader who’d like to participate!
Montreat@Home will function a little like Youthquake from Home. There will be daily teaching, interactive activities, and a Friday candlelight celebration. Montreat is geared to high school students, but because we are now participating remotely, ALL YOUTH (6th through high school graduates) and adult leaders are invited to participate. We hope you’ll join us!
