Each summer high school youth, young adults, and adult leaders gather together for a week to grow in their faith, in their commitment to Christ, and in community with each other.
GenOn Youth Summit West is held in Estes Park, Colorado and GenOn Youth Summit East is held in Wheeling, West Virginia. Participants spend the week experiencing all four parts of LOGOS every day along with dedicated time for mission in the surrounding community.
Each year the participants dedicate their Friday worship offering to support a variety of local or national organizations.
This year they collectively donated $2,024.35 for the newly developed GenOn Ministries DeHaven Grant.
Through the DeHaven Grant, GenOn Ministries seeks to support churches who have established or wish to start LOGOS weekly ministry as a means of being an intergenerational church, yet have limited funds to do so. The grant provides coaching, training, resources, and experiences for evaluating and then starting, restarting, revitalizing, or sustaining a LOGOS ministry for a church or for a cluster of churches. Included is also funding to attend the summer youth summits.
A BIG thank you to all the participants of the GenOn Youth Summits. Their gift will help us continue our mission of equipping faith communities for Christian discipleship through intergenerational relationships.
