Young Adult Seminar

Dear Friend,You are cordially invited to participate in the 2014 Young Adult Seminar (YAS) to be held at Cedar Glen Outdoor Centre (Schomberg, Ontario, Canada) on August 6 – 8 prior to this year’s KCNA conference.  Join your friends, old and new, to explore this year’s theme,“Kami”.

The Young Adult Seminar is a great opportunity for believers ages 18-25 to gather, share experiences, and learn from one another.  This year we will be focusing on what Kami is and our relation to Kami, in preparation for the KCNA conference.  We will have a guest speaker, Reverend Motoo Tanaka (Konko Church of Osaki, Japan), who will share his experiences with us.  Also joining us will be a new staff member, Lanna Moriwaki (Konko Church of Gardena), who is a fellow Konko Youth Camp and YAS alumna.  Together, we will have a series of discussions, work on a group project, and enjoy some games and fun activities.  The seminar should be a fun and memorable experience for all and will probably help create some long-lasting friendships as well.

The cost of the seminar is covered by KCNA and includes meals, lodging, and activities.  KCNA also offers a subsidy based chart shown below:
