  • 2019 Starpoint Reformed Young Adult Festival in Hungary

    Tuesday, July 23, 2019 through Saturday July 27

    Every two years, thousands of young adults, ages 18 - 34, from all over the Carpathian Basin and international guests from around the world gather to worship, fellowship, and grow in faith with one another at the Starpoint Reformed Youth Festival. Each year, during the festival, young adults participate in various programs, including opening and closing worships, daily keynotes, round table discussions and workshops, and evening devotions and small groups.

    This year's theme is Unity, which will encourage young adults to think critically of “unity” in a wider context: fellowship within local communities, shared love as sisters and brothers in Christ, and much more. The young adult festival will begin on the afternoon of the 23rd of July in Debrecen, and it is recommended that delegates from the United States arrive earlier, on the 21st of July in Budapest.

    Program Outline:

    • 21-22 July, Special program in Budapest for international guests
    • 23-27 July, Starpoint Festival in Debrecen
    • 27 July, Afternoon Transfer back to Budapest
