Riverside Presbyterian Church is located in a part of Jacksonville that is full of young adults. We also have on staff a young adult pastor who serves as the Director for Young Adult and Global Outreach Ministries, and another young adult who is the Director of Youth Ministry. Most of our work with young adults right now is relational, not program-based, but we do have small groups for young adult women (in their 20s and 30s without kids) and for mothers of young children. Our young adults who sing in the choir, volunteer as ushers, work with youth, serve on committees, and work as counselors at the Presbytery Summer Camp. Every January, we take a group of college students to the College Conference at Montreat, and during the year more than 60 members regularly keep in touch with our college students as part of the "Secret Pals" program. Most importantly, though, we offer young adults an opportunity, not only to connect with one another, but also to be part of an intergenerational, missional community. In that spirit, Rev. Proctor also serves as a chaplain for the young adults serving with Americorps in City Year Jacksonville. If you are a young adult who is looking for a church home in Jacksonville, please contact Rev. Emily Proctor and come find out more about us!
