Exciting ecumenical opportunities available for young people between the ages of 18-30, nationally and internationally.

The National Council of Churches (NCC) is accepting applications for its Stewards Program during the 2007 General Assembly Meeting in Woodbridge, New Jersey, November 6-8, 2007.

The General Assembly is the annual gathering of 250 delegates from 35 member churches/denominations, representing 40 million Christians in the United States. Young adults will encounter a rich multicultural environment at the meeting and will experience the church at work, living its unity in Jesus. It will also provide them an opportunity to network with other young adults from across the country, worship in an ecumenical setting and interact with church leaders.

Deadline for applications is September 14, 2007.
