YOUNG MINISTERS, PASTORS & LEADERS (YMPL)
We are THINKING and ACTING together; making a POSITIVE difference in the Faith Community and in Society!
YMPL is an ecumenical, Spirit-filled, network of ministers, pastors and leaders. We are not a denominational or reformation group. YMPL is meant to build a mentoring community for empowerment, enrichment and education for ministers and pastors of any church and Christian leaders in business and in the community to help them to achieve the calling of God for their lives.
Some ministers and pastors are young in age and others are new in ministry. In either case, the hearts of many ministers and pastors are yearning for support, advice, or just someone to walk with them through their ministry-related ups and downs. As a mentoring group, YMPL hosts scheduled times to meet either in-person or online for informal group discussions about ministry. Your ministry calling is important for advancing the Kingdom of God in the world. As a mentoring group, we aim to empower ministers and pastors through a peer accountability team that prays together, supports each other, and encourages one another to serve faithfully.
Surveys show that many ministers and pastors feel a need for ongoing training on a wide-range of ministry-related topics. We are committed to this need for ongoing educational resources to help ministers, pastors and leaders to access needed information for them to fulfill their ministries with excellence.
Research shows that many ministers and pastors feel lonely in ministry. Leadership enrichment often happens through partnering with other passionate leaders who are sold out for Christ and committed to participating in Kingdom impact. YMPL facilitates opportunities for ministers, pastors and leaders to get to know others with a like passion. True fellowshipping includes recreation, worship, and dining. This also includes opportunities for leading couples to enjoy time with other ministry couples.
