[Video] Evolve 2014

Ever wonder why the Youth and Young Adult Ministry is so important to the life of our church? "YAYA", as the ministry is affectionately called, fosters inclusion and hope in places that might seem lonely and uncertain. If you're not a teen yourself, this impact may be difficult to experience or see in action. Which is why BC Conference is proud to produce this video and share the experience of its annual "YAYA" gathering, Evolve.
