Hello, District NYI Convention is coming up March 9, 2018 from 6-8pm at the Nampa College Church of the Nazarene.
NYI Convention is held annually and it includes elections of NYI Council members, various reports, worship (NNU Covenant), and a guest speaker.
Churches need to register their NYI delegates by submitting a list of names with contact information (phone number and address) to Debi Hodgerson the NYI Secretary by noon on March 8, 2017. Email her the list to Hodgerson.firstname.lastname@example.org You can call 208-867-4164 (cell) to verify she received your email.
Your delegates are required to be members of your local Church of the Nazarene. Please verify their membership.
Each church can bring a set amount of delegates to the NYI Convention. In order to figure out how many delegates you can bring follow the instructions below:
You don't have to be a delegate to attend District NYI Convention. There will be a special area marked reserved just for the delegates. Anyone can attend, and I encourage that non-delegates attend. There will be areas where non-delegates can sit and watch as reports are given.
The number of delegates you can have is determined by the following example:
1) Look in the 2017 Intermountain District Assembly Journal (attached). Look on page 97 and locate your church name and look under column 28 (NYI Membership) and this will tell you what your church reported as the number of NYI members. (The members are not necessarily only members of the Church of the Nazarene; they are the number of teens/young adults in your ministry responsibility list.)
2) Then look in the 2017-2021 Manual (attached) on page 319 to determine how many delegates you can bring.
