God loves young people and so do we!
Our ministry team (affectionately called YoYoFa) exists to build and support ministry with children, youth, young adults and families in the Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod.
Want to connect with other youth or youth leaders? Interested in support for your youth, young adult, or child ministry? Check out the many ways you can get involved below and then email email@example.com with any questions or to schedule a time to get together.
Growing Young 2020-2021:
NEPA Synod is Growing Young!
While the seeds will be planted as our youth leaders work through the book in their lunches/brunches throughout 2020, there is much more to come in terms of our engagement with these faithful practices as a synod.
Youth Gathering 2021:
Youth Ministry Network Lunches and Brunches are opportunities for Youth Leaders (rostered, lay, staff, volunteer) to connect and be equipped for ministry in their contexts. Check our Facebook page or group for upcoming lunch dates.
YoYoFa is the team in charge of planning and leadership for our synod Youth, Young Adult, and Family events. All are welcome to be part of this team. Join our email list for updates about when we’re meeting next and what we’re working on!
