NOMINATIONS FOR YOUTH TO SERVE

Our Ohio District Youth Ministry Team will be in need of some new faces once part of the 'team' graduates in June.  The young people to be nominated should be sophomores or juniors in high school this year.  It's important to nominate youth who are active in church, have some leadership skills, the willingness to work with both peers and adults and most of all LOVE JESUS and want to share their faith. NOMINATIONS CLOSE JANUARY 1, 2015.  To download a form, click here.
