Young People's Ministries
Young People's Ministry is ALL ABOUT CONNECTIONS...
We serve those who are in youth and young adult ministries and the workers who lead them.
Our purpose is to help local churches do what they do more successfully by offering resources, leadership training, and high-quality, high-energy evernts for the students. We also provide:
- Connection to our Campus Ministries Programs
- Materials for your ministry program
- Program support and "spreading the word" about your event or idea
- Education and training opportunities available for you and your congregation
- Coordination of events that connect us as a Conference and as a denomination

Helping others is a lifestyle. Our desire is to help your people learn how to help others, in their everyday lives and around the world.

This year's presenter is Erin Sloan Jackson.

She also connects, trains and mentors youth workers as the National Director of Community and Care for the Center for Youth Ministry Excellence (CYMX) and frequently writes for The Youth Worker Movement. As a certified youth minister, she has been serving in youth ministry for over 15 years.
You'll come away with new understandings of millennial research and the National Study on Youth and Religion, digital resources to building relationships & ministry, plans & ideas for new ministries to implement with your youth community.
