Being new to a youth ministry position, I really didn’t know other youth workers in the conference, or even what I was doing. YMCP has allowed me to share with others about my highs and lows in youth ministry. The feeling of knowing that you are not alone, and other people are out there and really enjoy youth is very moving and empowering. YMCP has allowed me to look at myself and my ministry, and start thinking what is best for both areas. I was shown that I have to take care of myself and was empowered to do so. YMCP is a space that allows you to drop those walls and take care of you!
