History of YCM
For more than 30 years, Youth Conference Ministries has been assisting the church in its ministry to youth. We love kids and youth workers, and we love seeing churches grow and thrive. So we offer events for kids – designed and led by youth workers to give youth workers and kids time to be together – and events for youth leaders, like our “Ascend YCM” events, which helps folks hone their skills in communicating with youth – and support for the local church through prayer, a listening ear, job location services and, well, pretty much anything we can think of that you might need.
YCM has grown from a single, 300-person senior-high conference starting in 1977 to more than 20 summer events (conferences and missions trips) and nearly 5,000 participants a year. This ministry started out as mainly a renewal movement of the Presbyterian Church USA, but by the 2000’s, YCM was completely independent, partnering with most every major denomination and any interested independent churches.
