Growing faith is a life-long journey that we at Apostles will take with our Youth. We have a whole network of faithful leaders who will accompany us on the way. With that said, the Virginia Synod's provides numerous resources to engage our Youth.

In the Virginia Synod, ministry with youth and young adults has been a high priority for generations and continues to be so during the time of our pandemic restrictions. We seek to build Christian community among youth of the Synod, provide opportunities for faith-sharing and faith-nurturing relationships between adults and youth, strengthen congregations in their faith formation ministries with young people, call our youth to be leaders and strong disciples in God’s work of bringing salvation and reconciliation to the world, and encourage all young people so discern their calling in God’s glorious realm. This is our mission.

Caring for the neighbor – particularly the most vulnerable among us – remains a key commitment in any decision we make about our events over the next year. In order to honor this commitment to the health and safety of all, we will be holding all of our events online instead of in-person. As planning progresses and conditions change, watch here at the synod website for updates on events – their exact dates, times, and other arrangements. Feel free to contact Synod Youth Director Dave Delaney at any time for further details or with any questions.
