Who we are

Who represents UYC?

UYC is represented by 6 members elected by provincial boards and 2 ex-officio members (UYDC and UBA). The 6 members are from different regions of the Moravian Church and are elected for a certain time period. Currently, these representatives are Chrislyn Edson from the African region, Damaris Enklemann from the European region, and Sylvie Hauser from the (North) American region.

These people are here to help you and encourage the work with youth in the province. If you need anything, do not hesitate to contact us and ask.

Your favourite book of the Bible: in the moment it’s Philippians, because it’s a letter written from a prison reminding us so many times to rejoice and to be happy through all the circumstances, it reminds me to praise God even if I don’t feel the best.
