Young Adult in Global Mission

Katie Elkin – Sunday, January 20 at 10AM

Join Katie Elkin, a recently returned ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) volunteer, for a presentation and conversation during the Sunday School hour.

The YAGM program invites young adults ages 21-29 into a year of international service with ELCA companion churches in 14 different countries. Katie served in Farafangana, Madagascar and taught English at three Lutheran schools – a primary school, a high school, and a school for visually impaired students. While in Farafangana, Katie enjoyed living in community with her global siblings and singing in her church’s choir!

Katie graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2017 with degrees in Biology and Psychology. She is currently serving as a Campaign Interpreter for “Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA” and is excited to have the opportunity to share her stories of accompaniment from the past year with Prince of Peace!
