USMB Youth

USMBYouth is the newly formed National Youth Commission of the U.S. Mennonite Brethren Conference (USMB) and serves as the national youth ministry leadership team. The primary function of USMBYouth is to support MB youth workers and their ministries as they disciple students in the context of the local church. The commission is formed of various people who have a passion for youth in a wide range of locations and positions.  We focus on three main areas: the youth worker (National Youth Worker Network), the youth (National Youth Convention), and impact opportunities (Project: Serve). Visit the USMB Youth website for more information.

The Network

This is a group of likeminded, passionate youth workers across the U.S. Either full time, part time, or even volunteer!  Our values are to connect, develop and resource youth workers.  Connecting by building a community of passionate youth workers who share each other’s burdens and feel inspired to keep going.  Developing by providing relevant training and coaching for personal and leadership growth.  And finally resourcing by offering helpful resources, tools, and curriculum on a wide variety of topics.  Click here to learn how to join for free!


The National Youth Convention, now named YouthCon, is a once-every-four-years event for Sr. High Students of the U.S. Mennonite Brethren churches. It’s four days of connecting, worshipping, learning and experiencing. It’s fun, challenging, relaxing, exhilarating, exhausting and exciting. It is the largest gathering of USMB students in the country and it’s been happening since 1975. YouthCon has, historically, been a life transforming event, during each past YouthCon, students have taken opportunities to begin relationships with Jesus, go deeper in Christian faith and make commitments to ministry and service.

The next YouthCon will be April 3-7, 2019 at the Glorietta Camps in Glorietta, New Mexico.

Project: Serve

The mission of Project: Serve is to encourage students to create local service project/campaigns that get students invested in their communities, churches, and cities. These projects are designed to encourage and assist students or youth ministries to make a positive impact in their local communities for Jesus Christ. A group or individual may go online to submit an idea they have for a project and apply for funds. Project: Serve can then, if approved, help provide funds or other resources to assist with the project. Our desire is to remove as many hurdles as we can in order for entrepreneurs to make an impact for Jesus Christ! Click the title above to learn more.
