Regional Youth Commission Applicants,
The Regional Youth Commission (RYC) provides a wonderful opportunity for 10th-12th grade
youth affiliated with Christian Churches in the Pacific Northwest Region like you to deepen your
faith by serving in a variety of ministerial roles at regional youth and other denominational events. God's call to minister to neighbor and stranger is an important expression of every Disciple's full participation in the body of Christ. The recognition of one’s ability to minister is life transforming to minister and ministered.
If you are interested in the Regional Youth Commission and have felt God's calling to minister to
others, please submit an application to join the RYC. The RYC will be accepting several new members this year and hope to have a full compliment of 12 RYC from across the whole of the Northwest Region.
The deadline to apply is June 30th, 2019. Promptness in submitting your application is very important. Late applications will not be accepted. It is the applicant's responsibility to verify that all parts of the application have been received by the Regional Office. The Regional Youth Ministry Team will review your application and make notifications concerning our decisions in advance of the start of the 2019-2020 school year. We prayerfully look forward to you applying for this ministry.
For any questions regarding the Regional Youth Commission please contact Chris Snow at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 253-893-7202 ext. 7.
Peace in Christ,
Northwest Regional Youth & Children's Ministry Coordinator
I desire to serve as a Regional Youth Commission Representative. I promise to cooperate with the other
representatives, the Adult Sponsors and the Regional Church Staff. I will uphold all the standards of
conduct set forth by the Northwest Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); and with God’s help, I will seek in every way to model leadership. To the best of my ability, I will participate in all activities and meetings of the RYC and at all times will conduct myself as the Christian example God has called me to be.
Finally, I understand that I will need to ask my pastor and a church leader (such as a board chairperson or youth minister) for references and that I am responsible for making sure they have been submitted to the Regional Office as part of my application.
* You will be provided a website link to share with your references in the confirmation email you're sent when this application is submitted.
I have read the information about the Regional Youth Commission of the Northwest Region of the
Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and my youth’s signed Statement of Interest. I hereby give the
above signed youth permission to serve as an RYC Representative if he/she is chosen. I understand that
they are expected to make the RYC a priority. I also understand that although adult coordinators try to
arrange car-pooling to and from RYC activities, I am ultimately responsible for providing transportation
to all RYC meetings and events. I understand that there will be financial needs for meetings and fees for events. I will support my youth’s effort and will work with the Adult Sponsors and Regional Staff to
make this a positive and successful experience for my youth.
