re:form Traditions is a four-unit curriculum that shares the history, beliefs, and practices that help youth discover how their faith tradition came to be.
PYWA is for everyone – The part-time middle school volunteer, the full-time paid high school youth worker, presbytery or camp staff, college students, retired pastors, people you know and people you don’t know – anyone interested in supporting the call to youth ministry.
Let joy be unconfined – PYWA doesn’t need to follow historical boundaries. Although PYWA can exist within presbytery lines, a PWYA community could also be a group of rural parishes, or maybe it’s all the youth workers in your city, it might even encompass several presbyteries.
Communication is key – Some people read email exclusively, some need paper, and others need a personal contact. Communicate using all methods available. Also, feel free to use the PYWA logo from this website on all your communiqués.
PYWA can look like:
An annual weekend retreat
A weekly coffeehouse Bible Study
A monthly PYWA lunch and sharing
A quarterly recreation experience
A weekly prayer breakfast at rotating churches
This is the beauty and excitement of PYWA – YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!
