Welcome to Youth + Family Ministry in the Metro D.C. and Delaware-Maryland Synods! You'll find information here about upcoming youth events, our high school leadership development program, youth worker education and networking, and more. To view the full website for each synod, click on its logo below.
We empower congregations and their leaders to help households become places of faith lived by:
providing practical resources, consultations, workshops, networking events, and continuing education opportunities for leaders;
encouraging young people to become leaders who are excited about sharing the Good News of God’s love at all levels of Church;
equipping congregations to support inter-generational ministry and faith formation for everyone within the household; and
sponsoring events and gatherings that model community and faith formation.
Come dream with us!
All members of the Metro D.C. and Delaware-Maryland Synods are invited to be a part of imagining what is next for our shared Youth + Family Ministry. We will hold a visioning session on Saturday, November 4 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Community of Grace campus (5699 Meridale Road, Baltimore, MD 21228) for anyone who would like to help us dream and plan for the future. This session is intended for congregational youth workers, rostered ministers, leaders in partner ministries, young people and their families, and invested congregational members. Registration is not required, but letting us know you're attending will help us plan for the day. If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Julie Stecker.
