Doug Hexel, NY
I'm Doug Hexel and I'm originally from Poughkeepsie, NY. I'm a Senior at the United States Military Academy at West Point and the Cadet-in-Charge of the West Point Canterbury Club. I also attended Gather 2008 out in Colorado in December. I made a lot of great friends out there and got some new perspectives on life. I'm looking forward to a similar experience. I'm also looking forward to the Reception by the President of the House of Deputies. Thanks.
presents Young Adult Voices, a network of places and web-places where young adults in the church can share their thoughts, hear from others and make themselves heard. We invite your contributions at any time, but the high traffic moments will be during festivals, gatherings and special moments in the life of the church, like General Convention 2009. We'll be gathering submissions all through the festival, July 9-14, from participants, observers and deputies, so check in early and often and hear what young adults are saying. And, hey, if you can't be there but want to hear about something, send a message or a comment and we'll find someone to explore and report back. See you in Anaheim!
