Youth ministry isn't just confined to the youth group. Our vision for youth ministry is that it permeates the life of the congregation and that youth are fully involved throughout the Association. Read the Report (PDF, 24 pages) from the Youth Ministry Working Group for a deeper look at the vision and ways you can put it into practice in your congregation.
Read the Blue Boat blog post "Multiple Pathways: What Does That Mean?" for a quick overview of offering multiple pathways for involvement.
Small group ministry gives youth an opportunity to build relationships, explore big questions and interact on a deeper level. The Tapestry of Faith resource Sharing the Journey: Small Group Ministry for Youth will help you get started.
Supporting youth as they transition into young adulthood is an important part of youth ministry. Visit Transitioning From Youth to Young Adulthood for resources and curricula that prepares youth to bridge as well as supports them in their transition.
Youth conferences, also called "cons," and other overnights are popular ways for youth to bond, explore topics in greater depth than possible during a regular meeting, and share a spiritual experience with youth from other congregations.
