Youth Workers: The Network

Ministry is not meant to be done alone. The Youth Worker Network is designed to connect youth workers from across North America. This is for anyone who works with the next generation, including full-time, part-time or volunteer workers. Join the network today for free!

Youth: Ascent

Ascent is an annual national camp for high school youth held in June every year at Glorieta Adventure Camps in Glorieta, New Mexico. The idea of Ascent is a very simple one. A climb or walk to the summit of a mountain can be a difficult journey, but at the peak a view or a treasure makes the journey worthwhile. USMB NextGen has identified several treasures campers will experience at Ascent. First, gathering as a family of believers is always a special aspect of the camp experience. Second, and most importantly, the time together is intended to lead to a very special place of intimacy with Jesus.

Prior to Ascent, USMB Youth hosted National Youth Conferences, held every four years. Read about previous NYC events.

The Church: Leadership Pipeline

The Leadership Pipeline identifies, invests in and empowers leaders for vocational ministry by providing members with paid ministry internships, free leadership training and connection with local internship possibilities. Internships provide real-world ministry experience and help confirm a call into vocational ministry.

Churches and other faith-based organization are also invited to join the Leadership Pipeline. Members will be connected with potential intern candidates and help to prepare for a successful internship experience. During the internship, you will receive guidance and training for both mentors and interns.
