CBFGA Institutional Partners – Youth Ministry Network (CBFYMN)

As an aspiring youth minister, I was invited during my time in Divinity School to attend a retreat called OASIS, the flagship event of the CBF Youth Ministry Network. When I entered the Assembly Inn in Montreat, North Carolina, I couldn’t have known how important the CBFYMN would be to my ability to fulfill a calling to youth ministry.

Being Salt and Light in the Year Ahead by Megan Turner Doud

Therefore, for the past year, we have been laying the foundation to co-lead a music camp, bringing together musicians from the Unites States and across East Africa for a transformative week.
