November / December 2018 Making Christ Known

This issue focuses on young people in our congregations.

In November 2017, Bishop Clements called together a group of leaders to talk about revitalizing youth ministry in the Northern Illinois Synod. This group formed a purpose statement and has worked to bring together youth ministry leaders from each conference.

Plans are in the works to have an overnight youth event in conjunction with the March 2019 Congregational Resourcing Event. Young people at that event will make plans for a synod-wide youth event in the fall of 2019.

The purpose of the NIS Youth Ministry subcommittee is to facilitate faith formation of young people through the building up of relationships, resourcing of leaders, and the organization of youth ministry events that congregations can’t do on their own.
