Young Adult Weekly Fellowship
This gathering is on hiatus until spring. Email Bruce if you want to be contacted when it restarts.
The Knox Young Adult group (graduated high school to early 30s) meets Monday nights from 5:30 to 7:00 pm (but drop in when you can) at Quigley’s restaurant in downtown Naperville on Jefferson Ave, one block east of Washington St. Park on the upper deck of the parking garage off Jefferson, and when you walk back down the ramp, Quigley’s is across the street to the right. Mondays are usually $5 angus hamburger night (yum!), but other items are also on the menu. We look forward to having you join us for food and fellowship. Contact Bruce at to be added to the weekly text update for this group that also includes invites to our special events.
Young Adult Mission Trip
Each year for over ten years, Knox has organized a week-long winter break Young Adult international Mission Trip (college age and beyond). We always complete a major service project on these trips (such as house building, bunk beds, large concrete projects, etc.) along with fellowship and worship with a local church and running a children’s fiesta or VBS. We consider different locations each year so the young adults have the opportunity to experience multiple cultures during their college years. Information about each year’s trip is available in the spring, with commitments to go due in June. To get information on our next trip when it is available, or if you have any questions, contact Bruce Burkelman at
. In addition to Knox young adults and their friends, we also need a few older adult sponsors as well. Below find videos from some of our recent trips.

Go & Serve Young Adult Leaders
For every Go & Serve high school mission trip in June, Young Adults serve integral leadership roles. These Young Adults serve on work teams, lead small groups and build mentor relationships with our high schoolers. Contact our Youth and Young Adult Leader, David Newby if you are interested in serving in this capacity. Young Adults must have been out of high school for at least two years.
Knox Young Adult “Boxing Day” Party
Each year we have a Christmas gathering for Knox Young Adults (college age and young professionals) over winter break and it is now always on December 26th, the day after Christmas, which is called “Boxing Day” in many parts of the world. This is a great time to reunite with your Knox friends for food, drink, games and fellowship. Return to this page in the Fall for information on the next Young Adult Boxing Day Party.
