Youth Ministry at Burke Presbyterian Church
We at Burke Presbyterian Church take seriously our baptismal promises to welcome and nurture youth on their journey of faith.
Please use this 2018-19 Registration Form (one per family) for the 7th-12th grade youth in your family who will participate in programs at the church. Feel free to contact Adam Ogg (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions or need additional information.

- Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly: Opportunities include trips, workshops, retreats, and youth conferences. Senior highs may also serve on the Presbyterian Youth Connection Committee at the presbytery and synod level.
Burke Presbyterian Church is a PYC Church
Burke Presbyterian Church (BPC) is a Presbyterian Youth Connection congregation. In all aspects of our ministry with youth, we strive to be led by the five intentions of youth ministry:
- Call young people to be disciples of Jesus Christ
- Respond to the needs and interests of young people
- Work together, youth and adults, in partnership
- Be connected to the whole church, community, and world
- Be inclusive of all people
BPC is the chartering organization for Troop 1346 of the Boy Scouts of America. The troop participates in worship with us one Sunday each year.
