Youth and Family

Youth ministry provides support, encouragement, leadership, and resources for young people and their congregations, including youth gatherings, leadership training, community service events, confirmation workshops, youth oriented seminars and retreats, counseling training, and spiritual growth opportunities for both junior high and senior high young people.

Family ministry provides a total family ministry framework for the local church, with special emphasis on building healthy, well-functioning families of all types. Parenting training, marriage enrichment seminars, counseling training for professionals, and extensive family resources are available to all churches and individuals.

Singles ministry enriches and expands resources and services to adults who are single because of divorce, death, separation, and never-marrieds of all ages and gender. Training events, resource provision, retreats, and conferences are regularly offered for single people and their leadership.

Congregational planning assists congregations in assessing their current ministry needs, and formulating corporate goals and constructing a realistic action plan to achieve the stated goals. Personal, custom visitations over several days are offered by a specially trained congregational consultant.
