    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Conference Council on Youth Ministry (CCYM)

    The theme for this year's Conference Youth Events is "Embrace" and the theme verses are Mark 11:22b-24: "Have faith in God.  Truly I tell you, if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and thrown into the sea,' and if you do not doubt in your heart, but believe that what you say will come to pass, it will be done for you.  So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."

    Exciting changes for CCYM!

    Every year the Conference Council on Youth Ministry (CCYM) gathers for five days at one of the six Conference camp and retreat centers to talk business and have some fun in the process. It is a great meeting of the minds, and this is where the planning for the next year of events begins. This year, they began planning their fall and spring events, which will take on an entirely new format. Click here to learn more.
