“Live it.” 

"Live It!" More than 1,000 youth heard that message during Youth Annual Conference (YAC), a weekend designed by teens for teens. 

The youth and their adult leaders came to Lakeside Chautauqua, from across Ohio, to worship, fellowship, do mission work, have fun, and conduct business together.  Keynote speaker the Rev. David Whitt challenged the youth to remember that in everything they do, they should be worshipping God, a message reinforced all weekend by YoungHeart, a band of four siblings from Miami, Florida. 

In her Sunday sermon Bishop Tracy S. Malone told the youth, “You have an awesome opportunity each and every day to share your faith.  You never know who God places in your path who needs an encouraging word.”

Four Areas of Focus of The United Methodist Church

ENGAGING IN MINISTRY WITH THE POOR – The Nehemiah Mission of Cleveland is just one example of how the East Ohio Conference is in ministry with the poor and the marginalized. United Methodists believe working side-by-side with those in need is better than top-down charity.  Learn more.

IMPROVING GLOBAL HEALTH – East Ohio teens created Project Feed, at which they packed 50,000 nutritious meals for those in need around the world.  The United Methodist Church has become a key player in fighting diseases and promoting initiatives that improve the well-being of others. Learn more.  

DEVELOPING PRINCIPLED CHRISTIAN LEADERS – The church needs leaders rooted in Jesus Christ who have a vision for changing the world.  The Candidacy Summit is one of many forums in the East Ohio Conference for clergy and laity to explore and nurture their leadership skills.  Learn more.

CREATING NEW AND RENEWED CONGREGATIONS – The Twice Blessed Free Store is reimagining what it means to be the church.  United Methodists are modeling new ways of being in ministry with others, revitalizing faith communities, and planting new congregations to reach people for Jesus Christ.  Learn more.
