God is still speaking and so are our youth. The Ministry for Youth is committed to leadership and spiritual formation and youth advocacy. Connect with resources for and by youth and the youth workers, leaders, advocates and ministers who partner in this great work. Youth as defined by the United Church of Christ are those persons who are between 13 and 17 years of age. This is your youth page. Stop by often to find information and to share! Youth are the future right now. Youth are still speaking, Welcome!
The Council for Youth and Young Adult Ministries (CYYAM) advocates, communicates, coordinates, and networks on behalf of youth and young adults of the United Church of Christ (UCC).
Sometimes God will show up in the most unexpected places and at unexpected moments in our lives. Have you ever sung a song and just started to cry tears of joy and happiness? Have you ever felt peace and comfort by the look, fragrance or gesture of flowers? Have you left home for summer camp and returned renewed in spirit or inspired to make a difference in the world after rock climbing, exploring a labyrinth or making new friends?  How have you encountered God in unexpected ways? Where has God shown up untraditionally and out of the box in your life? These are the questions we will explore together at General Synod.
