An Invitation for UCC Youth
United Nations Seminar 2021
(February 19-27, 2021)
The Adventure Continues: “An Opportunity of a Lifetime”
“It was an awesome adventure.” “I went 12 years ago, and I’m still in touch with the friends I made on the UN Seminar.” “It changed how I see the world.” “I’m doing what I do today, because of what I experienced on the UN Seminar.” “I learned that faith has a place in government decision making.” “It was so AWESOME!!!”
These are just a few of the comments made by the thousand or more young adults who have had the opportunity to be a part of the United Nations International Affairs Seminar Tour sponsored by the Christian Church in Ohio since the early 1960’s. Better known by its short title, “UN Seminar”, it is organized every two years to enable 46 Sophomore, Junior, and Senior High School students from Disciples and UCC congregations around Ohio to experience how faith and government are linked together in the decisions and action of our Nation and the World.
The next UN Seminar tour will be held February 19th – 27th, 2021. Our theme will focus on Immigrants, Immigration, and Diversity. Pray about how this could be “An Opportunity of a Lifetime” for you. This invitation is extended to all Heartland Conference UCC Youth, 10-12 grade.
