Gettysburg Seminarian Adam Sornchai Named Young Adult Steward for National Council of Churches’ General Assembly


November 8, 2010 (New Orleans, LA) Fourth year Gettysburg Seminarian Adam Sornchai was chosen by the National Council of Churches to participate in the Young Adult Stewards Program for the 2010 General Assembly of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA (NCCCUSA)/Church World Service (CWS) to be held in New Orleans, LA, November 9-11, 2010.


Sornchai, a native of New York, will complete his studies in preparation for ordained ministry in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in 2011.  The ecumenical agency is observing its centennial during this year’s national gathering, which is shared by the globally active relief agency, Church World Service.


Chosen from an unspecified number of applicants, Sornchai expects to report more than daily by way of social media from the assembly, which began the evening of Nov. 7th and continues to the 12th. He will be tapped by the assembly for special duties and write a post assembly reflection as well.
