Our rapidly changing world.

“Who am I?” and “What do I believe?” These are the most basic questions our kids are asking as they navigate through the challenging, change-filled, and formative years of childhood and adolescence. A host of ever-present voices are catechizing our kids 24/7, providing “answers” that all-too-often mis-lead our kids into believing and living in ways that undermine their human flourishing. When these voices point them away from the message of the Gospel, our children and teens wind up traveling through life on the wide road that leads to destruction

Our Youth Ministry Calling.

As youth ministry leaders, our high calling and great privilege is to faithfully bring the light of God’s unchanging Word into the lives of our students and their families with the balance of grace and truth. We desire to see them come to saving faith in Jesus Christ while growing into a lifetime of biblically-faithful, whole-life Christian discipleship as they endeavor to live to the glory of God. In effect, we are cross-cultural missionaries who need to know both God’s Word and the cultural context of today’s world. God is calling us to effectively lead by becoming like the people of Issachar, understanding the times and knowing what the people of God are to do (I Chronicles 12:32).

Come and Be Equipped, Connected, And Encouraged!

The Northeast Youth Ministry Summit is a lively gathering of rookie youth workers, seasoned veterans, paid and volunteer, who come together to be equipped for ministry while connecting in rich community for four-days of youth ministry training. Once again, we’re bringing together some of the best and most-experienced experts who will train and encourage you with depth and faithfulness to know God’s Word and how to best communicate it in today’s world. We are excited to invite you to join us for this four-day ministry training event at the Ligonier Camp and Conference Center, nestled in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania.

The Summit is co-sponsored by the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding and Reformed Youth Ministries (with over 80 years of combined experience offering practical, relevant, and Gospel-centered youth worker training)
