Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.)
What is Y.O.U.?
The Youth of Unity (YOU) is an international youth group for teens ages 14 to 18 (grades 9 to 12). The purpose of YOU is to encourage and assist in the spiritual growth of all young people who are seeking to express the indwelling Christ in accordance with the principles of practical Christianity as taught and interpreted by Unity World Headquarters at Unity Village and Unity Worldwide Ministries. YOU provides youth the opportunity to explore Unity’s principles and other truth teachings and to demonstrate these in their daily lives.
How do I get involved?
Any Unity church or study group affiliated with Unity Worldwide Ministries may facilitate an active YOU group.
What is an active YOU group?
An active YOU group:
· Is under the direction of a recognized Unity member ministry of Unity Worldwide Ministries
· Is active in their regional YOU
· Includes one or more teens ranging from the ages of 14 through 18 years of age and at least one adult sponsor
A YOU group typically meets on a weekly basis, usually Sunday morning. Youth discuss and learn a variety of spiritual teachings, attend social gatherings, and become involved in their church and community. Officers, or a leadership team, are often elected to help plan for the local group.
Regional representatives, “regis,” are teens elected each year at their region’s official rally. They plan and lead at least two rallies a year as well as attend and offer their support to other events held during the year. Regis work closely with their regional consultant.
We welcome (from left): Quinton Walker from New Braunfels, TX; Sofie Full from Boulder, CO; Reaghan Overpeck from Colorado Springs, CO and Elysia Nunez from McAllen, TX as Unity South Central Region’s new Regional Team for Youth of Unity.
Each “regi” represents a subregion of the Unity South Central Region of Unity Worldwide Ministries.
The USCR 2018 Youth of Unity Regi Team invites YOUers, sponsors and ministers to subscribe to its new newsletter, to be published every two months (or so) and before YOU rallies.
“We as a regional team are very excited to create these Newsletters. We plan on sending out thought provoking quotes, articles of interest, our personal thoughts and testimonies and cool tidbits involving upcoming rallies. We will be spending a lot of time on this, and we hope you enjoy it immensely!”
