The National Youth & Family Ministry Training week is a national training for Unity youth ministry teachers, leaders, sponsors, and directors. It is a 40-hour integrated study that explores who are young people are today and how their spiritual journeys can be empowered by Unity teachings and our Unity communities. How is the power of story able to unlock the potential within each child? What questions live within the learner? How do we use our facility, staffing, and programming to create dynamic ministry for young people?
