Today’s children and teens are growing up in an increasingly post-Christian world filled with confusing cultural change, despair, relational pressures, identity options, and a host of other difficult challenges. For so many young people, these burdens lead to crushing anxiety and hopelessness. It is in this very place that the Gospel of grace meets them – satisfying the deepest needs of their hearts through union with Jesus Christ.


As youth ministry leaders, our high calling and privilege is to walk with middle and high school students as we communicate God’s Word in ways that God uses to draw them to Himself and live all of life to His glory. Our presence and voice play a powerful role in students’ lives, offering hope and healing. Together, we desire to hear our students echo these words from the writer of Hebrews: “We have this hope!”


Whether you are a rookie youth worker or a seasoned veteran, we invite you (and your team!) to be equipped, connected and encouraged at the Northeast Youth Ministry Summit. This new four day ministry training event will be held at 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 training youth workers)
