On Monday, July 15, 2019, eighteen delegates boarded a bus at the New Covenant Presbyterian Church in Albany and drove overnight to Purdue University in Indiana to attend PYT (Presbyterian Youth Triennium).

Youth delegates included: Matthew Taylor (Trinity); Sierra Brower and Bianca Ropeter (Mayfield); Brianna Obi, Dorothy Sperry, Lydia Green, Pharryll Elad & Luke Eaton (First Pres Albany) and Henry & Agnes Sowah, Andy & Alex Scaptura, Caleb Karkari-Mensah, David Adjei (Westminster). Chaperones: Jerry McKinney (UC of Granville), Araglin Kite, Roger Green & Christy D’Ambrosio (First Pres Albany).

We spent the week in worship, study & fellowship…not to mention walking around the huge campus with a heat index well above 100 degrees. What a Week! We returned to Albany Very Early Sunday morning 7/21 (Sorry Parents!). Thank you both Youth and Adults for participating in this enriching experience and Thank You Albany Presbytery for making it possible.
