YOUNG PEOPLE'S MINISTRY
The missions team reviews all the project grant applications at their spring meeting, and proposes a budget at Youth Annual Conference in June. Upon approval, the ministries receive monies in July of that year.
YOU! The largest form of funding comes from benevolent giving from the local churches. In addition, the YSF committee has fund raising activities including the sale of merchandise at special events like Youth Annual Conference. YSF Contribution Form.
Plan regular fundraisers for YSF in your church.
Challenge your youth group to give a Biblical tithe (10%) of the money they raise for their own activities to YSF.
Encourage individual youth to pledge. Did you know that if every United Methodist teenager across the nation gave 50 cents to YSF every 3 months, we would raise $1,500,000 from that source alone!
Due to the overwhelming response the last couple of years for our Coin Challenge at Youth Annual Conference, (we raised $3,584.55 in 2017) we are needing to update our procedure. We can no longer find a financial institution that will accept all of the coins and the weight of all the buckets have become a bit overwhelming.
So, we are launching “Coin-a-Palooza.” Districts and local churches will now be encouraged to donate coins during any and all their special events throughout the school year. The change will then be given to the District Youth Coordinators. The coordinators will then send checks into the Conference office, and we will keep running tallies through the year on the Conference website. The winning District will be recognized on Saturday of Youth Annual Conference in June.
Thank you for supporting this fundraiser!
