New Young Adult Initiative: Representing Emerging Adult Leaders (REAL)
Oct 18, 2013
NEW YORK – The Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministries (Y2AM) unveiled a new initiative geared toward young adults, ages 18-35. Representing Emerging Adult Leaders (REAL) is a collaborative effort led by young adults for young adults. REAL encompasses existing ministries like YAL, OCF, dance groups, sports groups, etc., while also reaching out to those who may have fallen away from Church activity.
REAL offers young adults resources and programs that present the Orthodox Faith in an honest, smart, sometimes humorous, and always relevant way – everything from podcasts and videos to fellowship, worship, education and service opportunities.
As there is no typical young adult, REAL will offer different resources tailored to help different young adults find their place in the Church - whether they are college students, in the workforce, married or single.
REAL Weekend: Philadelphia (July 3-6, 2014) will embody this by bringing young adults, in similar life situations, together for faith, fellowship and service.
