 Get plugged in with the Youth Ministry Network! We meet monthly on Zoom to share ideas and have an annual retreat in the fall to share ideas and resources while taking some time for spiritual renewal and soul care. We are hoping to create quarterly regional gatherings - message Shannon if you'd be interested in hosting a gathering at your church. Click here to find out how to get plugged in to the Youth Ministry Network!
