YOUNG PEOPLE'S MINISTRIES
East Ohio Conference Young People’s Ministries (YPM) is living out a uniting vision by bringing together under one umbrella youth, college-age, and young adult ministries. Doing so eliminates the silo effect, and the loss of common goals, that so frequently accompanies singling out ministries by age group.
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 of Jesus Christ who then make other disciples for the transformation of the world. We accomplish this through leadership development training events, retreats and network connections.
24-Hour Youth Leader Retreat | January 20-21, 2023
Embassy Suites Akron Canton Airport
Come enjoy the fellowship and support of others who work with young people while having the opportunity to experience different ways to engage in scripture that you can take back to your churches. We will set aside intentional time for silence, sleep, and connecting with one another.
YOUTH 2023 | BOLD: Being Ourselves. Living Different.
Daytona Beach, FL Tuesday, July 25 - Friday July 28, 2023
Every four years, youth from throughout The UMC have gathered for four days of discipleship, fun, and fellowship at the YOUTH event. The event is filled with interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service opportunities, and fellowship time. Adult leaders who bring youth to our event can expect inspiration, support, and chances to authentically experience what it means to be part of the Methodist and Wesleyan family. YOUTH 2023 will be an especially important year for you and your youth to be a part of this gathering. COVID-19 restrictions have limited youth ministry opportunities over the last two-plus years. YOUTH 2023 is a chance for your church to again experience cutting-edge speakers, amazing artists, and broaden your youth’s understanding of what they and their church are capable of!
