About NNYA

The SBC21 young adult network offers principled African American clergy and young adults support and mentoring as they further hear, discern, and practice their call to ministry. By connecting young adults to a greater network of other disciplined young adults, campus ministers, mentors, and seasoned ministry leaders, we build a pipeline of transformational leaders to serve within the church and respective UMC affiliated HBCU campuses.

The goal of the NNYA is to identify, recruit, train and build a national network of relationships with 500 young adult leaders from various walks of life committed to being and making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
