Goals of Yellowstone Conference Youth Ministry


Our Goals:

  1. Helping local church and communities identify individual needs while setting priorities for youth ministry(grades 6-12) and youth events!
  2. Creating district (or circuit) youth events that are closer to your home!

  3. Strengthening friendships between youth of nearby communities.

  4. Supporting adult youth leaders when sharing ideas and supporting each other as District (or circuit) partners!

  5. Inviting more youth to participate and grow as leaders at Circuit or District Events!

  6. Allowing district Youth Ministry Teams set the schedule and activities for Conference Youth Events!

How do I get Youth or my Church Involved?

  • Young people--Jr high & Sr. high youth and adult youth leaders/clergy get together 2-4 times per year (including at Annual Conference and CONVO) to plan District and Conference Youth Events.
  • Abbie Thompson, the Conference Youth Coordinator, helps with some of the logistics of planning and coordination of volunteers at District and Conference events.

  • Circuit Youth Ministries are already starting and flourishing, many youth groups are creating cluster events and are planning Jr. High retreats in their districts. 

How can I get involved?

  • SHARE this info and website with your church youth leader and youth. Encourage them to check the website weekly/monthly
  • Contact Abbie Thompson about getting a district youth ministry team meeting in your area late summer (Aug – Sept).

  • Send youth and leaders from your church to conference youth events and camps!

  • Hold a Youth Lay-Speaking Event.

  • Bring your Youth to Annual Conference (optional youth events may be held in conjunction with AC).
