Young Adults

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.   –1 Timothy 4:12

Whatever you're doing as you start your adult life, God wants to be a part of it. Whether it's going to school, working, or joining the military, #Adulting can be challenging. Make the transition to a young professional a little easier by joining other like-minded young persons and journey together.
