3. Youth Forum Seeking Facilitators


Maritime Conference Youth Forum is looking for some folks who are enthusiastic about youth ministry to be facilitators at the Spring 2017 Youth Forum event, which co-incides with the annual meeting of Maritime Conference in May (May 25-28).

You would spend four faith filled and inspirational days with youth between Grade 10 and age 19. It is a transformational experience for youth and facilitators alike.

In addition to being fully present at the event itself, facilitators must be available for a training weekend in Halifax (likely the last weekend of April).

Apply on-line at the following site:

Deadline for applications is Friday, January 6, 2017.

More information on being a Youth Forum facilitator can be obtained from Jodi Vacheresse (Facilitator Rep to the YF Planning Team) at ““. You can also visit
