95432       Youth Advisory Delegate Schedule Released  
       as Overtures Arrive Calling for Return of Full Slate 
                      by Jerry L. Van Marter 
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--The Office of the General Assembly has released its list 
of which presbyteries will send Youth Advisory Delegates (YADs) to the 
General Assembly in even- and odd-numbered years. 
     The division was necessitated when the 207th General Assembly (1995) 
voted to cut the number of YADs in half, with each presbytery sending a YAD 
to the Assembly every other year instead of annually. 
     The issue was hotly debated at the Cincinnati Assembly and two of the 
first four overtures to the 208th General Assembly (1996) call for 
restoration of the full complement of YADs.  The two presbyteries calling 
for a return to the "every presbytery every year" YAD representation are 
Winnebago and Twin Cities Area. 
     Meanwhile, the presbyteries who will send YADs to the 1996 General 
Assembly are Abingdon, Alaska, Arkansas, Beaver-Butler, Boise, Cascades, 
Central Florida, Central Washington, Charlotte, Chicago, Dakota, Denver, 
Detroit, Donegal, East Iowa, Elizabeth, Florida, Foothills, Geneva, Grand 
Canyon, Great Rivers, Greater Atlanta, Holston, Homestead, Hudson River, 
Huntingdon, Indian Nations, James, John Calvin, Lake Erie, Lake Michigan, 
Lehigh, Los Ranchos  
     And Miami, Middle Tennessee, Milwaukee, Missouri River Valley, 
Missouri Union, Monmouth, Muskingum Valley, National Capital, New Castle, 
New Covenant, New Harmony, New Hope, New York City, Noroeste, North Central 
Iowa, North Puget Sound, Northern Kansas, Northern New England, Northern 
Waters, Ohio Valley, Palisades, Pittsburgh, Plains and Peaks, Redwoods, 
Riverside, Sacramento, St. Andrew, Salem, San Gabriel, San Jose, Santa 
     As well as Santa Fe, Savannah, Sheppards & Lapsley, South Dakota, 
South Louisiana, Stockton, Suroeste, Susquehanna Valley, Tampa Bay, 
Transylvania, Tres Rios, Trinity, Upper Ohio Valley, Utah, Utica, Wabash 
Valley, Washington, Western Kentucky, Western New York, Western Reserve, 
and Yellowstone.
