YOUNG PEOPLE'S MINISTRIES
The East Ohio Conference has brought together Youth, College-Age and Young Adult Ministries under one umbrella for the purpose of a uniting vision. Too often we single out ministries which causes a "silo" affect and a loss of common Goals.:
A ministry that incorporates "the big picture" is prepared to equip young disicples through life's journeys and transitions. (middle school -> high school -> college -> first job, etc.)
It is our goal to walk alongside young people as they navigate their faith journey throughout their lives and into adulthood.
YPM seeks to support the local church and districts to raise up Christian leaders who are disciples that make disciples for the transformation of the world in Jesus Christ. We accomplish this through leadership development training events, retreats and network connections.
East Ohio Conference youth continue to set an example of the cooperative ministry that is needed to reach out into our mission fields, both at home and around the world. November 10-11 teens and their adult leaders hope to pack 50,000 meals that will be sent to developing countries around the world. Learn more. | Purchase gear for Project Feed
