Our goal is to help train and connect people working in youth ministry.  We believe that youth ministry should not be done alone.  We encourage all youth workers to not only connect and build a volunteer team at there local church, but they should also connect with others in ministry.  These connections build a greater community where we can learn from one another, share with one another, and lean on one another for support, guidance, and friendship.

Our United Methodist Connections are designed to help each of us shepherd youth through adolescence.  The links below are just a few of our connections, please contact us if you would like to learn more about the UM church, our youth ministry community, or any of the items found on this site.
