What is Young Calvinists?
Young Calvinists is a committee formed in 2015 under the oversight of the Young People’s Federation Board that seeks to connect young people from different Protestant Reformed congregations and to foster spiritual growth and fellowship with one another.
Where did Young Calvinists come from?
The name “Young Calvinists” has some history behind it. Young Calvinists was originally the title of a youth periodical that Herman Hoeksema edited in early nineteen hundreds. That periodical was dedicated to the spiritual growth of the youth of the church. Following our namesake, Young Calvinists seeks to build up Protestant Reformed young people in their faith and friendships with one another.
What are the goals of Young Calvinists?
Young Calvinists’ main goal in all of our activities is to further unite Protestant Reformed young people, to foster friendship and Christian fellowship with one another, and to promote zeal for the precious heritage of the Reformed faith that we hold in common.
What do the Young Calvinists do?
Young Calvinists hold a number of events for young people throughout the year. The two staple events that we hold regularly are Cantate Domini and Talking Points. Cantate Domini means “sing to the Lord.” It is a kind of song-service that is often hosted by a young people’s society. Talking Points is an interactive lecture that focuses on a topic relevant to the lives of young people. Young Calvinists also holds a number of other events throughout the year to provide opportunities to get together for fellowship and growth.
