Young People’s Ministry at Annual Conference

By Audrey Wilder, Director of Young People’s Ministries

The Young People’s Ministry (YPM) is excited to continue to be a part of Annual Conference. We will carry on the tradition of raising money for and awareness about Youth Service Fund. Youth Service Fund (YSF) is money raised by youth, administered by youth, for the benefit of youth ministries. If you are interested in applying for a YSF grant, visit, and click on the youth tab for more information.

This year you will be able to help us reach our goal for raising $7,000 for YSF by donating to

A variety of amazing gift baskets will auctioned off during Conference. Interested parties will be able to place bids on all baskets at the YSF table in Brubaker Auditorium. Some of last year’s baskets included: Bath and Body, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks, Hershey Candy, Fun at the Beach, S’more Fun, The Apple Area, Duffle Bag, Great Outdoors Camera, and Healthy Eating for You!

If you, your church, or your business would like to donate a basket for the auction, please contact Audrey Wilder at the Conference Office no later than June 1 to make arrangements.

Youth members of Annual Conference will provide dish removal service for the gathered community following meals on Thursday from 12:00-1:30pm and Friday from 4:45-6:45pm. Those wishing to say thank you for the service will be invited to drop a donation in a jar as they leave the cafeteria.

Youth will be making popcorn during each working session throughout Annual Conference. Popcorn will not be made during mealtimes or worship services. We will not charge for popcorn, but would appreciate a donation. Those looking for larger portions of popcorn will be able to purchase reusable popcorn containers for $2.00 (supplies limited).

Young People’s Ministry will also be sponsoring two lunch and learn workshops on Friday afternoon.

IGNITING YOUNG LEADERS - Young Adults don’t need one more thing to do. But they do need a way to serve God in the local church. Come hear from young adults serving in local church leadership and discover helpful tools for igniting your congregation to empower and support young leaders.

CHANNELING YOUR FIRE - You are not content to sit on the sidelines and watch church happen. You want to be part of the Spirit moving in the local church. Come learn how other young adults channeled their passions into ministry and strengthened their local congregation.

The Young People’s Ministry will be selling ALIVE IN CHRIST (red & black) and GROW ON t-shirts for $10 each at the YPM table in Brubaker Auditorium. Susquehanna Conference Neck Wallets will also be for sale for $4.00. Funds collected from the sale of t-shirts and neck wallets will go to subsidize new t-shirts for the new quadrennium starting in 2016.
