The East Ohio Conference Youth Leaders Network was recently recognized as one of the Top 101 Outstanding Resources and Organizations for youth ministry in the United States.
The designation was bestowed by Online Seminary Schools, a website dedicated to resourcing individuals who are considering entering seminary.
In describing those on the list, the site touts:
“The organizations, camps, bloggers, and youth pastors included on this list have all made it part of their mission to bring excitement, engagement, and opportunities to youth populations within their own churches and beyond. Anyone hoping to get involved in youth ministry, as a pastor, mentor, volunteer coordinator, or in another role, will find great resources here.”
In describing the East Ohio ministry, the author of the list writes, “The Youth Leaders Network in East Ohio has been formed to support, encourage, train and pray for each other in ministry. It is their goal to empower teens with skills to be Christian leaders now and in the future.”
The East Ohio Conference has long been blessed with teens who are proud of their faith and in living it out on a daily basis have brought others to Christ.
Discipleship will be the focus of Youth Annual Conference (YAC) 2014. The theme this year is Navigate.
