Regional Youth Ministry Gatherings provide opportunities for parish youth ministry leaders and high school campus ministers to share their successes and challenges, to explore resources and to grow in knowledge and faith among a community of peers.
During the 2017-2018 year, OYYAFM will be offering several different professional development opportunities for all who work with teens, including youth ministers, youth ministry volunteers, DREs, clergy and teachers/Campus Ministers. These offerings will allow each of us an opportunity to gather together for not only professional development, but an opportunity for fellowship and networking. Please check back for dates and details over the coming months.
For more information on resourcing, please do not hesitate to contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or to view the materials from Ascension Press (www.ascensionpress.com).
