STL Gathering for Youth Ministers

This school year we are continuing to gather with fellow youth leaders for fellowship, prayer, and collaboration. We have already had three gatherings. The first was in August at the OYM office, the second was a fun-filled fellowship at Rosalita’s Cantina, and our most recent was a special gathering hosted by Kristina Radley at Duschene High School for both youth and campus ministers. Last year we invited campus ministers to join us for the first time and both gatherings have sparked great conversation and collaboration. We meet with youth ministers every month to discuss various topics in youth ministry. Campus ministers are always welcome to join; twice a year our gatherings will focus solely on youth minister and campus minister collaboration. Read more »
