Youth Ministry Team

Jacob Eckeberger (YouthWorks) leads a Training on "How to Reach Gen Z."

The Youth Leadership Ministry Team is passionate about equipping youth, youth staff, and congregations to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. They do this by encouraging best practices, resourcing congregations with theologically sound resources, and providing excellent events and gatherings. By working closely with Camping and Retreat Ministries, the team works to use rich camping resources and create opportunities to build leaders.

The Youth Ministry Team works to equip, connect, and transform youth and youth leaders throughout the conference. The team oversees the planning of statewide events, including The Event and the Confirmation Gathering. The team is also available to recommend resources, mentor new volunteer and paid youth staff, provide church-specific trainings, and connect youth and their leaders with United Methodist events and resources throughout the connection.
