YMD HELPS LOCAL CHURCHES TO DEVELOP MINISTRY TO YOUNG PEOPLE THROUGH TRAINING, SUPPORTING AND MENTORING LOCALLY
Our main focal points are YMD HUBS where we host a lunch (or brunch or supper) once a month, in various locations around the country so that those who are serving teens in their church can find support and encouragement, receive tips and training and get to know others in their area who are serving teens in various contexts.
YMD is available to help you think through how best to serve young people under your care, providing young people with something that’s engaging and worthwhile.
Through personal conversations, careful listening, tailored training and on-going support we help churches like yours to think through the priorities of ministering to teens and what this might look like in your specific context.
YMD provides its services free of charge to local churches so that money is never an issue.
You can get in touch via our website www.ymd.ie where you can indicate if you’d like to be part of a HUB and if you’d like help or support in specific areas.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Our ‘Big Picture’ Vision is that…
Everyone involved in ministry to young people in Ireland be given the opportunity to be trained, supported and mentored locally to develop discipling ministries founded on clear, gospel-focussed bible teaching communicated effectively and creatively.
Every teen in Ireland be given the opportunity to be part of a gospel-focussed, bible-teaching, disciple-making youth ministry as part of a local church so that they have every opportunity to become life-long devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.
