YOUNG PEOPLE'S MINISTRIES
YSF is a grant process where funds are raised by teens for mission projects focused on youth, locally in the East Ohio Conference as well as nationally and throughout the world. It is administered globally by the Division on Ministries with Young People within the General Board of Discipleship of The United Methodist Church; and locally by the East Ohio Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM). YSF provides a way for youth to be in real ministry with each other. Not only do youth contribute money and receive the money for their ministry projects, but they also decide which projects are chosen. YSF really is youth in 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.
East Ohio CCYM accepts applications each March for funding requests. Please watch this page and the Conference E-News for updates.
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.
