Young Adult Theology on Tap
Our Young Adult group meets every Wednesday night (except the first Wed of the month) from 8-9:30 pm at Features in downtown Naperville for Bible Study and discussion. The first Wednesday of each month we meet at Pastor Robert's house next to Knox - 220 W. Gartner Rd - for a board game night.
Go & Serve Young Adult Leaders
Every Go & Serve, 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 Pastor Robert if you are interested in serving in this capacity. Young Adults must have been out of high school for at least two years.
Young Adult Mission Trip
In early January 2017, we traveled to Puerto Morelos, Mexico for the Amor Ministries Global Gathering Conference and House Build. Below are links to two videos from this trip.

For this year’s Young Adult Mission Trip, we are excited to be going to Belize, working with Praying Pelicans Missions, living in a local church, running a VBS, and completing a construction project in the community (likely a house, bunk beds, or chicken coops). Belize is located just south of the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico, where we served last year, therefore, we are expecting the same great weather. We look forward to meeting the people in this diverse culture where many speak English, and serving for the week in an intentional Christian community.
The trip is planned for 6 days, leaving on Wednesday Dec 27 or Thursday Dec 28, and returning on Monday Jan 1 or Tuesday Jan 2. We encourage young adults (college age and beyond) from Knox, River Glen, and 1st Presbyterian of DuPage, to consider inviting friends, and for adults interested in joining us, to prayerfully consider serving as an adult sponsor on the trip.
For anyone interested in this trip, please contact the trip coordinator, Bruce Burkelman, at or 630-209-1421, and you will be put on the interested e-mail list for trip updates, which will include the trip informational packet (with fundraising step-by-step guidelines) coming out in April.
The trip informational meeting for participants and their parents/guardians will be on Sunday, June 4th from 11:45 am to 12:30 pm in the Knox basement, but if you cannot attend this meeting, contact the trip coordinator beforehand, and we can fill you in separately. Your commitment to go, and completed fundraising plan, will be required in late June. We look forward to hearing from you!
College Care Packages
Knox Love College Care Packages, with snacks (regular or healthy) and an uplifting message, are sent to our college age young adults each year just before their college exams in November and April. Sign-ups will start again in the fall.
