The Young People’s Ministry Council is comprised of student and adult youth leaders from around the Susquehanna Conference. The mission of the YPMC is to equip student leaders to empower their peers to make disciples.

Applications to join our leadership team will be available here until July 1, 2018.  We use applications to help the team understand the skills present and those that need to be developed in each applicant. We seek students who have been confirmed in the United Methodist Church and are members of a congregation in the Susquehanna Conference. We love to have students who have little experience leading and those with lots of experience. We love students from big youth groups and students with no youth groups at all. If you know a teenager God is calling to leadership, we have a place for them at our table. Please send us these leaders of our Conference and for your church!


The Young People's Ministry Council will accept grants for the 2019 funding year April 1 - October 31, 2018 either online or by mail.



All applications receive prayerful consideration. Priority is given to applicants that are:

1) Youth-led
2) Creating or Expanding New or Existing Ministries
3) Racially and Ethnically inclusive
4) Produce documentation of other funding
5) UM ministries receive first consideration, followed by ecumenical and cooperative ministries, secular programs are also considered.
