The goal of the Hyphen ministry is to engage, equip, and send forth the young adult population of our district. We recognize that our young adults are in a chapter of their lives in which there tends to be much transition (i.e. into adulthood, higher education, career, etc.), and the Hyphen ministry seeks to provide a community and resources that will help them stay grounded in Christ and navigate this unique chapter of maturation. We want to encourage our young adults to embrace the energy, influence, and capacity that they have at this time in their lives to be effective disciple-makers in the Kingdom of God.
