Youth Ministry Networks:
We are better when we are working together! Check out these local and and national networking opportunities.
All adults who work with youth are invited and encouraged to attend youth workers network meetings! Network meetings are typically informal gatherings for mutual support, networking, learning and resourcing for ministry. Expect laughter, inspiration, new ideas and holy conversation. We are better when we do ministry together!
If it is your first time, it is helpful to contact the coordinator listed below to make sure the network group is meeting that month.
