Here are some tips for recruiting today's generation of young disciples, who have so many options available to them for spending their summers.
We strongly believe in making YMA an affordable resource for all parishes and schools. That's why we created the YMA Diocesan Discount Program for your parishes and schools. Through the program, the diocese agrees to strive for at least ten subscribing parishes and/or schools. Then parishes and/or schools receive a 20% discount when ordering! We also provide a free webinar to help parishes and schools learn how to use Youth Ministry Access. The diocese also receives a complimentary subscription for review and demonstration purposes. Best of all, there's NO COST to participate!
It’s always fun to try to guess the future. But history has shown that even our best guesses can be a little off. I’m still waiting for square tomatoes and grouch pills.
Welcome to our new Just5days webpage. We are so excited to have another way to connect with you! Last summer Just5Days engaged middle school youth in week-long mission trips in many cities around the country. Davenport / Quad cities was one of our new sites. I had the pleasure of working with Mary Ellen Pfeiffer and Sara Scogland to coordinate this "across state lines" J5D's. We also were blessed with the awesome musical talents of Chris Clow who is Campus Minister for St. Ambrose University in Davenport. The service opportunities were excellent and the youth had wonderful opportunities to serve, play, and pray together. We did have a bit of excitement our first night... at 2am the tornado sirens went off and we had to wake everyone up and head for the shelter area. Thankfully, there was no tornado but it did make for some fun memories! The following is an article from the local paper highlighting our time in the Quad Cities. Join us next summer in Davenport / Quad Cities! July 20-24
