Mennonite World Conference’s Global Youth Summit (GYS), an international assembly that provides a platform for young Anabaptists adults, aged 18 to 30 years, to share insights and learnings, has given delegates the task of conducting a national survey to amplify the voices of young Anabaptist youth and adults relating to this year’s theme, “Life in the Spirit: Learn, serve, worship.” The survey seeks to investigate prevalent issues and challenges experienced by young Anabaptists while developing strategies about specific actions that can be achieved.
