The Youth Ministry Institute


YMI is an ecumenical institute held each fall to provide training for individuals who work with youth in local churches.  Headed by a design team of currently serving youth ministers, YMI is designed by youth ministers for adults (clergy and laity) who work with young people in churches.  Each day of the Institute begins with a time for devotions, followed by class sessions, a time for topical small group discussions in the later afternoon and evening activities that include worship.
