The National Youth Ministry Training is an event for ministers, youth pastors, youth group leaders, the lot. The Uniting Church attaches the NYMT onto the National Youth Ministry Convention, a non-denominational youth ministry training event that occurs on the Gold Coast in October. Uniting Church participants attend an extra 2 days of UCA specific sessions as well as joining with everyone else in attending the NYMC sessions. It is a great opportunity to network, to share stories, to compare experiences, and to learn together. Jemma Whittaker, the Synod’s National Youth Activities Officer would love to take a small group of people across to NYMT because it is such a valuable space of support and personal development. If you can think of someone in your congregation with a heart for youth ministry or an interest in developing their skills and knowledge please get them in touch with Jemma at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Synod Office.
