Our Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) exists to help develop UM teen leaders. The teens on CCYM get leadership training with hands-on experience as they plan events for local churches at the conference level. These events help to empower the teens across the conference to be Christian leaders in their own churches, communities and schools.
We strive to maintain a delicate balance for our events to be sure there is leadership and spiritual develop, as well as evangelistic pieces and outreach opportunities all while having fun in the name of Jesus!
If you are interested in becoming a part of CCYM, please contact your District Coordinator.
