Young Adult Friends and seekers (ages 18-35) are invited to Pendle Hill’s annual intensive six-day conference – Continuing Revolution – designed to strengthen a networked generation of awakened and effective spiritually grounded change agents. This year, we will be focusing on the Peace testimony. Check out the things we’re reading, listening to, and watching to start engaging with this topic in advance on our Facebook page or by following our Twitter account. The program includes inspirational speakers, workshops and trainings, worship and worship-sharing, fellowship, community-building activities, opportunities for movement, and discernment opportunities.
The annual Continuing Revolution conference is designed for all young adult Friends who feel a movement in our generation to create the world we believe is possible, and to live into Right Relationship with the Divine, one another and the earth. The annual conference is open and welcoming to young adult Quakers of all backgrounds, experiences and Friends’ theologies. While we recognize that this gathering is firmly rooted in the unprogrammed Friends’ tradition, we also believe the thematic content to be urgently relevant to all branches of Quakerism and hope all interested young adults will feel that their voices belong at this table.

Each year, interested individuals are asked to submit an application for this program so that we have a better understanding of each participant’s background and hopes. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and applicants are notified within 2-3 weeks of submitting their application. Apply early, as space is limited! Conference fees for 2017 are $325 for all six days, including program, room, and board. Part-time participation is possible, as is commuting. Scholarship assistance will be available to those who need support (see questions at the bottom of the application for information on how to request assistance).
If you’re a young adult with a child, please be in touch with Katrina to discuss how we can facilitate your ability to attend and be present at the conference.
