The Young Adults in Global Mission program is through our partner church the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). Through this program, youth ages 22-29 answer a call to serve with a partner church abroad in one of eight different locations around the globe.
We are proud to be one of these locations, and each year the ELCJHL welcomes around 6-8 YAGM to serve in our schools, churches, and educational program sites. We greatly appreciate their service, and they get the unique opportunity to walk alongside the Christian Palestinian experience for a year, create meaningful relationships, and understand a different perspective on what it means to be a Christian.
Though the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has stopped us from receiving YAGM in the past two years, we look forward to the possibility of the program’s return and welcoming new YAGM into our synod.
