Make a New Year's Resolution for Your Youth Ministry Program

Debbie Gline Allen


As we enter a New Year, why not resolve to give your youth ministry leaders a supportive boost? Registration is open for the Massachusetts Conference Education for Effective Youth Ministry (EEYM) program which begins January 20th. EEYM is an interactive program for local church youth ministry leaders who are just beginning their work with youth, or who feel the need to obtain new skills. This program is designed for pastors, lay leaders, Christian education directors and youth ministry leaders who are interested in developing a comprehensive youth ministry in their local church.

EEYM classes are offered once a month at the Edwards House in Framingham. New this year is the option to attend via video conferencing! Classes are held on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and lunch is included:

January 20 — Theological Foundations for Youth Ministry
February 3 — Youth Ministry Resources, Social Media, & Safe Church Practices
March 10 — Mission and Service
April 28 — Youth Bible Study and Worship

Participants will receive an EEYM Certificate of Completion upon completion of all four classes plus Racial Justice Training.

The cost is $75 per session or $275 for all four. Lunch and materials are included.
