Vision, Plan, and Create a Strong Youth Presence

The Diocese and Youth Presence Ministries are hosting a series of workshops to help congregations figure out what their youth ministry might look like and how to build or strengthen it. YP Ministries and our diocesan staff believe that youth ministry is different in every place and possible in every place.
