What Is The Youth Ministry Network?


The network is a time for youth leaders to gather and share their ideas, plans, calendars, and dreams for the 2018 season.  The goal is to help each other think through classes, curriculum, events, etc.  It is also a time to stir up vision and ideas and encourage collaboration among churches.
