2.  Youth Forum Seeking Facilitators


Maritime Conference Youth Forum is looking for some folks who are enthusiastic about youth ministry to be home group facilitators at the Spring 2018 Youth Forum event, which coincides with the Annual Meeting of Maritime Conference scheduled for May 24-27, 2018.

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 or second-to-last weekend of April).

Apply online at the following site:

Deadline for applications is Friday, December 22, 2017.

More information on being a Youth Forum facilitator can be obtained from Larry Hale (Chair of the YF Planning Team) at
