Martin's List is the new, totally re-vamped resource for ELCA Youth Ministry Network Members. Another reason it's great to be a network member.

13% of the voting members for our 2015 NC Synod Assembly were 30 years old or younger. AMAZING! Thanks to our congregations for encouraging these leaders.
Plans are already underway for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston. Please hold the planners in prayer as they discern the theme, schedule and logistics of this event. For the first time, the Gathering is seeking applications for its planning teams from youth, young adults and adults. We're looking for faithful, dedicated and creative people who love the ministry of the Gathering and want to be involved in a new way. Applications will be accepted until July 1, 2016.

These trainings are available free of charge and best of all - they are online and will be downloadable. Can't beat it.
