NCCYM is the largest adult conference for Catholic Youth Ministers in the country. It is sponsored biennially on even numbered years by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) in order to help form and transform adults ministering to youth in the Catholic Church. The conference will:
- Equip those who minister to youth in the Roman Catholic Church with the knowledge, skills and abilities to form disciples in the world today.
- Enhance the competency of leaders at all levels through formation in both theory and praxis of five core competencies: Personal and Spiritual Maturity, Lay Ecclesial Ministry Identity, Catholic Theology, Pastoral Praxis and Professional Practice.
- Provide an opportunity to hear and see new resources and materials that support the comprehensive vision of youth ministry.
- Provide opportunities to network with others who serve youth as lay ecclesial ministers in the Roman Catholic Church.
Thousands of youth and campus ministers, religious education leaders, performers and artists and volunteers from every level come together for four days of inspiring keynotes, challenging workshops, dynamic prayer and worship, helpful networking, extensive resources, and goodhearted entertainment.
