As United Methodist, I am looking forward to the Global Young People’s Convocation (GYPC), which will be held on July 18-22, 2018 at the Indaba Hotel and Conference Centre, in Johannesburg, South Africa.

This is the largest, most extensive gathering of United Methodist youth and young adult leaders from all over the world. We are expecting between 300-400 delegates. Here’s the purpose of the GYPC from the Young People’s Ministries website.

  • Celebrating the mission and vitality of young people in the United Methodist Church
  • Raising the joys and concerns of young people from the global community
  • Developing young people as leaders for effective ministry in local churches and communities of faith
  • Highlighting emerging trends in youth and young adult ministry
  • Providing a common forum that embraces the global reality of the church.

#80Days80K Fundraising Campaign

To ensure that all the regions of the church are represented, we are raising funds for GYPC scholarships. I am participating in the #80Days80K fundraising campaign. The goal is to raise $80,000 within 80 days! I know it’s challenging, but with the support of United Methodists around the world, we can do this.

Here’s what I am doing to help support this campaign:

I will ride my bike for 800 kilometers. I am hoping to raise $1,600 (PhP 80,000). This means that each kilometer is worth $2 or PhP 100 (Philippine Pesos).

This means that I can reach my goal if I have:

  • 16 friends who donated P5,000 (USD 100) each;
  • 80 friends who donated P1,000 (USD 20) each;
  • 160 friends who donated P500 (USD 10) each;
  • 320 friends who donated P250 (USD 5) each; or
  • 800 friends who donated P100 (USD 2) each
