the EMMC Youth Ministry Council

This council has developed their purpose statement and strategic plan in order to best serve youth ministries in the EMMC. The EMMC Family of Youth Leaders is growing in its connection and support of each other. We look forward to sharing resources and encouragement with you.

Youth Events

Our youth conference, Treasured Foundation, happens every 3 years at the end of December.

TF focuses on connecting youth and youth leaders and inspiring them toward a deeper relationship with God through sessions, mini-sessions, worship, activities, and service opportunities. It is always a highlight for those who choose to make it a part of their year.  

TF2022 is the next
edition of TF.

Youth Leader Retreat

The EMMC Youth Leader Retreat (YLR) is an annual event where youth leaders across the EMM Conference come together to connect, rest and learn in a retreat setting.

the Gathering

The Gathering is an all-encompassing event where members of the EMM Conference come together
to gain vision, resourcing, connections, and encouragement. It happens every 2 years and the last Gathering was held in June 2021. 


Youth are a part of the EMMC, and typically at the Gathering we have youth events and youth leader training. As the Youth Ministry Council continues to assess our ministries there is potential for increased activities for youth and for youth leaders at the Gathering.
