International Affairs Seminar


March 8th - 16th, 2024
"An Opportunity of a Lifetime"

The International Affairs Seminar (formerly United Nations (U.N.) Seminar) has been a vital part of the Ohio Christian Youth Fellowship (C.Y.F.) since the early 1960’s. From then to now well over a thousand young people from Disciples congregations around Ohio have had the opportunity to travel to New York City and Washington D.C. for a week. For many, this has been a life changing experience, witnessing the diverse ways that faith plays a part in the decision making of our nation and the world.

Early Registration $100 Scholarship has graciously been extended to October 30th.

"It was an awesome adventure."
"I went 12 years ago, and I'm still in touch with the friends I made on the UN Seminar."
"It changed how I see the world."
"I'm doing what I do today, because of what I experienced on the UN Seminar."
"I learned that faith has a place in government decision making."
"It was so AWESOME!!!"

These are just a few of the comments made by the thousand or more young adults who have had the opportunity to be a part of the United Nations International Affairs Seminar Tour sponsored by the Christian Church in Ohio since the early 1960's. Now known as "The International Affairs Seminar", it is organized every two years to enable Sophomore, Junior and Senior High School students from Disciples & UCC congregations around Ohio to experience how faith and government are linked together.
