Thinking About Working For God for a Living is a signature program of the Connecticut Conference, UCC that provides leadership opportunities for youth who wish to explore vocation.

 

Notice - Do you have a strong faith and a bright spirit?  Have you ever felt called to share God’s light?  Are you “on fire” after a week at Silver Lake, a Mission Trip, or National Youth Event?  Have you ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, thought about working for God? Pay attention to these promptings from God and connect with TAWFG.

Name - There are lots of gifts that can be used to change the world.  “Working for God” has a broad definition; we are not just talking about parish ministry.  If you have a passion for art, music, or writing, you can use those skills to inspire others and serve God.  If you care deeply about issues like the environment, race relations, or poverty, you can use your voice to advocate for justice.  If you have compassionate heart, you can offer radical hospitality and words of healing to soothe broken souls.

Nurture -  Our Youth and Young Adult Ministry Team is dedicated to helping TAWFG youth explore vocation through a variety of events. There are many opportunities:  Silver Lake Conferences or employment, annual TAWFG retreat, and the TAWFG Apprenticeships to name a few.  We also invite TAWFG youth to take leadership roles in events like attend Synod, National Youth Event, Annual Meeting, or the Youth Revival.  Contact Debby Kirk, Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries for more information.
