Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) is a group of youth and adults representing each district in the Conference. They provide leadership for youth events in the Conference.
From each district, there are five youth and two adult representative. These are selected by nomination in consultation with the district superintendent and district youth coordinator. The district youth coordinator is nominated by the district lay leadership committee and voted on at the district conference.
The Council will be made of a good representation of persons from across the district, considering geography, size of church, ethnicity and gender. There should be no more that two persons from the same church on the Council.
Once a person is selected, he or she will serve until graduation, unless he or she resigns before that time. The year begins with a retreat in the summer. There are four meetings per year: summer retreat, fall meeting, meeting the Friday night of WOW weekend and a spring meeting. New persons are added during the year if there are vacancies on the Council.
