administration and with leaders/hosts in the travel area, we have

Birmingham, Alabama and a few surrounding areas for a week of service and Civil
Rights history and reflection. We're excited and grateful for this

The Hendrix Youth Institute (HYI) program will help rising high school juniors and seniors discern their call for ministry and specifically introduce participants to ordained and professional ministry. Using a holistic approach, the program will incorporate the “head, heart, and hands” to enable youth to understand God’s call.
The HYI experience will include:
The only cost to participants is a $100 refundable deposit.
HYI participants will also attend a one-day winter retreat in Little Rock that includes a service project and time of reflection.
Participants who are admitted to Hendrix will be reviewed for Hendrix Academic and Odyssey scholarships and may apply for a United Methodist Youth Leadership Scholarship. Grants are also available for certified candidates in the United Methodist Church.
