Camping & Young People's Ministry

We serve those who are in youth and young adult ministries and the workers who lead them.

Our purpose is to help local churches do what they do more successfully by offering resources, leadership training, and high-quality, high-energy events for the students. We also provide:

  • Bishop's Confirmation
  • Camps for youth and young people
  • Connection to our Campus Ministries Programs
  • Materials for your ministry program
  • Program support and "spreading the word" about your event or idea
  • Education and training opportunities available for you and your congregation
  • Coordination of events that connect us as a Conference and as a denomination
