Youth Ministry Champions

Faith Formation Ministries oversees a growing network of Youth Ministry Champions, one for every CRC Classis. Each champion works to empower and encourage those working on the frontlines of congregational youth ministry. Champions listen, pray, help connect, and serve as a voice on behalf of youth leaders at Classis. Their desire is to strengthen youth ministry in the CRC through networking, sharing resources, and consulting.
