(PNS) LOUISVILLE — Thousands of youths from across the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and the Cumberland Presbyterian Church are gearing up for five sweaty days of “conversation, recreation, learning, worship and fun” at this year’s 2019 Presbyterian Youth Triennium (PYT) July 16-20 at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind.
Since 1980, this “life-changing, life-giving, faith-growing” gathering’s mission has been to “deepen the discipleship awareness” of a generation who is already distinguishing themselves in this church and the world, according to the Triennium website .
One highlight of the 2019 version of the life-changing and faith-growing experience is worship, which takes place every day of Triennium.
Held in Purdue’s historic Elliot Hall of Music, worship at the event is planned by and for the thousands of young people who attend every three years.
“Drawing upon the stories, pathways, adventures and trials that real Presbyterian youth face, each service is crafted around a particular sub-theme, goal and focus Scripture. With drama, singing, dancing, and contemplation, worship at the Triennium is the central nerve center of the event,” as the Triennium website puts it.
