GYPC is the global event for United Methodist young people.
It is held once every four years for the purpose of:
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.
The GYPC also has a Legislative Forum, which is the venue for proposing and discussing legislation related to issues of concern to young people.
