Name: Young People's Problems Committee


Historical Note: Young People's Problems Committee, a standing committee of five of the Mennonite General Conference (Mennonite Church), appointed in 1924, merged into the Commission for Christian Education and Young People's Work in 1937. Its purpose was to assist the church in improving its ministry to its youth, and to help guide the youth organizations springing up in many local churches, especially the literary societies. It introduced and for a time sponsored the Young People's Institute and promoted the holding of Christian Life Conferences. Major leaders in the committee were Noah Oyer (d. 1930) and O. O. Miller. Similar committees were established about the same time in a number of the district conferences (MC) usually called simply "Young People's Committee."
