SPECIAL FOCUS MINISTRIES DEPARTMENT
- Your YWR should be a member of the LCMS with a deep love and devotion for her Lord Jesus Christ.
- Your YWR must be able to participate in the full scope of the convention.
- Your YWR should be a mature young woman, preferably 22-35 years of age.
- Your YWR should know the commitment required of her following the convention as she steps into a volunteer leader role in her district, zone, or local group.
- Districts are encouraged to send two YWRs but may send up to four.
- Districts are responsible for all costs associated with your YWR’s attendance at the LWML convention. A cost estimate is provided at the end of this letter.
Please refer to the YWR Selection Guidelines found on the Young Women in Mission webpage for more information regarding participant selection recommendations.
We encourage you to reach out to Young Women in Mission webpage to learn more about the program. In addition, reach out to past young women and ask them to help recruit YWRs for district and national convention.
The Committee on Young Women is planning an intensive program which will immerse these young women into what LWML is all about. It is our goal that they will return to their districts, zones, and local groups ready to share what they have learned and to intensify their service to the Lord through our organization.
If you have questions or inquiries for the Utah-Idaho YWR’s please email Madison Elliott, Utah-Idaho Vice President of Special Focus Ministries.
