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.
Youth Leaders Network Retreat - Telling Your Story
March 17-18, 2017
Hilton Garden Inn, 8971 Wilcox Dr. Twinsburg, OH 44087
Come for a 24 hour personal Sabbath as we explore our stories and how to share them with one another and with those we serve verbally and through the art of stained glass. We will venture to Twinsburg Faith UMC to see how they have used stained glass in ministry. Stained glass artist, Brad Fiscus, Director of Next Gen Discipleship at the Tennessee Annual Conference will share his talents.
It is a great way to connect with other adults in youth ministry as we navigate our call together.

Youth Annual Conference is a weekend leadership development opportunity for 6-12 (recent grads) grade United Methodist teens. There are unique worship opportunities with a keynote speaker for the weekend. You will find break-out groups that are designed to allow the students to take topics deeper with their peers and an adult leader. Youth groups are given devotions to discuss together in the evenings. We also provide plenty of fellowship and free time for activities around beautiful Lakeside.
Come be a part of this growing event that is designed by teenagers to reach out to teenagers who desire to grow in their relationship with God and their youth group while understanding what it means to be a leader in our connectional United Methodist movement.
