Bishop Youth Committee meeting seemed more like an obligation than a proactive interaction with our leaders. I wanted my young women on the Bishop Youth committee to focus on the needs of the members of their class. As part of this objective, I looked for a BYC agenda which would help them to focus on individuals instead of programs and activities. I couldn’t find an agenda or create anything that I particularly liked for BYC until I found one on Inkablink. I adapted it to the needs of our small youth group. Feel free to use it as you would like!
Within the church, members are invited to participate on councils to direct and guide the activities.
“The Lord’s Church is governed through councils. Under the direction of priesthood leadership, leaders counsel together for the benefit of individuals, families, and the Church. Effective councils invite full expression from all council members, who seek to be united and guided by the Holy Ghost to build the kingdom of God. Learning how revelation is received in councils can help us participate effectively in council meetings, including presidency meetings, bishopric youth committee meetings, and family councils.”
