New Methodist Youth President promises a year of courageousness
Jasmine Yeboah was inducted as the new Youth President of the Methodist Church with a service at St Mark's Methodist Church, Tottenham, London on Saturday 1 September.
Jasmine, herself from Tottenham and a member of St Mark's, will represent thousands of young people across the UK in this important role in the life of the Church.
She has taken up the position of Youth President following an election at last November's 3Generate, the Methodist Children and
Youth Assembly and takes over from Michael Pryke.
In her inaugural address, Jasmine thanked Michael for his work over the past year before moving on to her own priorities and motivations for the year ahead.
Jasmine says: "My focus for the coming year is courageousness and courageous loving. To be loving of yourself, of others and, most importantly, of God. I want to challenge young people to do things differently, to try new things; from writing to your MP and campaigning for change, through to getting sponsored to do something exciting for a charity."
Outgoing Youth President Michael Pryke commented: "My year in office went by in a flash, full of adventures and experiences. My advice to Jasmine, and to all Youth Presidents, is to take time to take it all in and to focus on the goals that will empower young people."
