UPDATE! Deadline extended for Congregation Teams and Individual Youth to Apply
Even though the deadline for applying for Leadership Camp has passed, we still have space. If you need more time than that, please contact Catherine (Synod office 218-724-4424) to see if that is possible.
The NE MN Synod Leadership Camp is especially designed for our smaller congregations who don’t have a Youth Director with the skills to train and equip youth as leaders. You don’t need a large team – most congregations bring 1-2 youth with an Adult Leader. We hope one of your volunteer leaders is able to attend and grow with your youth, but if you are not able to identify an Adult Leader who can take time off work, one of our college interns will accompany youth who apply and attend as Individuals.
If you are a congregation that has a vision to connect youth with meaningful relationships, deeply root them in faith, and equip them to lead in your church and beyond, Leadership Camp is for you! Find more information and apply at www.nemnsynod.org/YouthLead.
