Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM)

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.
