District Youth Ministry Council

The purpose of the District Ministry Youth Council is to equip, empower and engage the youth of the church for the lives of Christian Discipleship.

The Florida Georgia District values the importance of youth ministry. This is evident in youth ministry staff at the District level, the equipping of volunteers to lead events for youth, and programs that have been put together to help youth grow in their relationship to God and service to others. The District Youth Ministry Council has been appointed by President Walton and established to coordinate youth ministry efforts in the district. The DYMC will equip, empower, and engage the youth of the church for lives of Christian discipleship. To ensure that the purpose of the Florida Georgia District ministry is carried out, the DYMC will accomplish this by assessing the needs of the youth of the church, developing a plan of action based on the assessed needs, implementing the plan, and evaluating the results.
