Shown at Annual Conference 2011

The Global Young People's Convocation and Legislative Assembly - Berlin, Germany | 2010

About 350 youth and young people representing 32 countries -- from Angola to Zimbabwe --registered for the July 21-26 event, which is sponsored by Young People's Ministries, a division of The General Board of Discipleship of The United Methodist Church.

The five-day event includes worship, Bible study and leadership development for the participants, who come together to bridge the social, economical, religious, ethnic and political gaps and differences that often separate and divide them.

During the convocation, 144 young people and adults who are attending as voting delegates convene a Legislative Assembly, which is designed to give young people a voice in the church through the legislative process.
