Latest News from PYWA:
As you know, change happens. And over these last several months, PYWA has gone through our own. Most notably, we said a sad goodbye to our Director, Michael Harper. Michael did an amazing job and we are excited for what is ahead for him! But in the midst of saying goodbye, it means that we get to open the door up for what God has in store for us next, or rather, who.
After lots prayer and discernment, the PYWA Board of Directors is excited to welcome our new Acting Director, Michelle Phillips. Mich has been a long-time active member and leader with PYWA. We are grateful for her discernment and willingness to take this next step with us.
Dear Members, Partners & Friends of PYWA,
I am so blessed and humbly grateful to accept the call to serve as PYWA's Acting Director.
Since PYWA's small beginnings, I have witnessed this group connect youth workers across the country to build lasting relationships, support and uphold their vast ministries in the good and the challenging times, and inspire them with words of encouragement and opportunities to grow in their faith and capacities for ministry. I have always been, and continue to be, passionate about the amazing things that PYWA has to offer: from coffee mugs that hold the ever important elixir of life (I still have mine!), USB drives that save our curriculums and lessons, car chargers that can charge more youth cell phones than you can imagine, to a now vast array of actual financial discounts for a variety of events, mission projects, and even curriculum. Throughout it all, I have been honored to be a part of this grassroots organization as it has grown into something that continues to make a big impact in the lives of youth workers.
Peace in Christ,
