There’s a reason that Jesus sent his disciples out “two by two.” We all need support, and ministry is so much more fun when we have companions on the journey. That’s why we seek to offer ways for adults ministering with youth in congregations to gather for training, networking, resource sharing, and learning best practices.
Youth Ministry Network
Something we hear often from adults who minister with youth is a desire to connect with colleagues, share resources, and learn best practices in youth ministry. For 2017-2018 we’ll be hosting quarterly gatherings where youth leaders, whether paid or volunteer, can do exactly that. Youth Ministry Network meetings take place at various locations around the diocese, and are offered online as video conferences.
Plan-It is a guided planning and sharing experience for those responsible for youth ministry. Review essential youth ministry lenses, planning tools, and usable templates. Participants design a well-balanced, one year framework, with an emphasis on self- care and building a leadership producing culture.
