Youth About Us

Office of Youth Ministry is focused on the purpose to:

  • equip young people for ministry and ministry leadership;
  • to foster and enhance spiritual growth in youth and those who work with youth;
  • to resource local congregations in the area of effective youth ministry;
  • to provide training for those who work with young people; and
  • to actively participate in and promote the “connection” through district, conference, jurisdictional, national and international events and programs and through meeting disciplinary structural guidelines.    

Youth events and activities are planned, organized and implemented by youth of Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM).  CCYM is led by youth from our local churches representing each district for the purpose of providing opportunities for spiritual growth and formation with youth across the denomination.  Youth leaders on CCYM build and strengthen leadership skills, serve as a model young servants, and discern their call in ministry.   

 

The Mission of the CCYM is to  INSPIRE – TEACH – EQUIP – CONNECT

We want to INSPIRE students and those around us with the love of Christ by our witness

We will TEACH others how to love God, love others in the way that we live and serve

We will EQUIP students to share the love & hope of Christ outside of our comfort zone

We will provide opportunities to CONNECT with other United Methodist (and beyond) because we are better together in unity with Christ.
