The CCYM mission is to find ways to encourage young people to follow Jesus, make disciples, and to transform the world. 

The Conference Council on Youth Ministries is a leadership team of youth and adults from all over the Conference who come together to share and develop resources/events for youth ministries. In addition, the CCYM receives grant applications and awards Youth Service Funds each year for things like local missions and community outreach.
