Young Adults

Few terms are more ambiguous in The United Methodist Church than the term “young adult”. In the Mountain Sky Conference, anyone between the ages of 18 and 35(ish) is considered a young adult and is invited to participate in young adult activities with the MSC. These events and activities include everything from community service days to discernment retreats, and they are a wonderful way for young adults to network with each other across the MSC.

Campus and College Ministries

College is in full swing across the Mountain Sky Conference and campus ministers are ready to welcome your students on campus. Most colleges and universities do not provide student contact information to campus ministries. Youth leaders, Sunday school teachers, family and friends - we need your help. The only way campus ministers can welcome your students is if you forward their information to us. We look forward to an amazing academic year!
