Conference Youth Council
The WI Conference Youth Council works to equip leaders in our congregations to empower youth ministry to happen at a local level.
For adults who work with youth, we host an annual training retreat. Our research indicates that over 60% of our youth leaders are caring volunteers who have little to no training. In one weekend, we seek to provide tangible, practical resources you can apply in your ministry right now. We also incorporate networking and community building, as well as giving you a chance to rest and enjoy the environment of camp. We traditionally hold this retreat the weekend of Daylight Savings Time. For more information, contact the Coordinator of Age-Level Ministries.
For youth, we offer a leadership training opportunity at Annual Conference in June. Youth must apply for this selective program. During Annual Conference, youth will meet with key Conference leaders, learn more about upcoming issues and legislation, and prepare and present a panel discussion for adult members of Annual Conference. Applications are due March 15, 2020. Download application
