Young Adult Scholarships to General Conference

Austin Methodists Will be Providing Two Young Adult Scholarships to General Conference

Thanks to Joy Butler’s leadership and enthusiasm, SWTX MFSA and RMN members from Saint John’s, First,  and University UMC will be providing two young adult scholarships for General Conference.  The two recipients are:

  • AJ Bush is a recent graduate of Colorado State University with a BA in Music, who is doing a year of service in San Antonio before entering seminary in the fall.  She is passionate about a wide-variety of “issues” including LGBT inclusion, poverty and environmental care. She worked in the Rocky Mountain Annual Conference in various positions before coming to Texas.  Her musical talents will be an asset to MOSAIC www.rmnetwork.org/extension-ministries/mosaic/ for helping teach the song and dance to volunteers who wish to participate in the Flash mob at GC.
  • Johnny Gall is a senior who will be graduating from NYU this year.  He is an active MOSAIC leader, and one of the most important overall young adult organizers for General conference.  Johnny will be helping with volunteer coordination and general leadership for young adults.

It looks like we may have the possibility of a third Young Adult scholarship.  If you would like to help make this possible, please contact Janice Curry at jlcurry@austin.rr.com for more information.
