Young Adult Advisory Delegate (YAAD) Nominee: Stephen Hornyak
I would be honored to serve as a Young Adult Advisory Delegate from the Olympia Presbytery to General Assembly in June 2016. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is important to me. I am interested in engaging in the work of the denomination, learning about the questions before the General Assembly, voicing my opinions and listening to others.
I am a member of Lakewood Presbyterian Church (LPC). I attend worship regularly at LPC, run the sound system during worship, and serve occasionally as a worship leader. I am active in the church youth group, and I often assist my mother in her work as the church custodian. I have also been a camper at Camp Sound View, and have been a part of the Leader in Training (LIT) program the past two summers.
I am a junior at Bethel High School. I am a strong student and a leader. I am maintaining a 4.0 GPA, and am the Vice President of the National Honor Society this year. I am a member of both the jazz band and the concert band. I enjoy leading, including being the class Treasurer in 10th and 11th grade, mentoring 5th grade students at a local elementary school, managing the school track and field team, and being the cinematographer of the football team. Among other activities, I participate in National History Day, in which I placed 5th in state last year.
I am a hard worker, and if elected I will do my best to represent the Olympia Presbytery well at General Assembly. Thank you for your consideration.
