Seth Adema, Jon Bentum, Mark Eekhoff, Elizabeth Jennings, John Kloosterman, Robert Van Lonkhuyzen, and Corey VanHuizen served as young adult representatives at synod.

“I’m excited in the direction that the denomination is going in listening to multiple voices,” said Mark Eekhoff. “But there’s still room to grow.”

The representatives came from all over North America, including Iowa, Illinois, Washington, and Ontario.
