Whether you are very new to youth ministry or have years of experience behind you we believe this conference will be a place of inspiration and renewal for you.

The theme for the 2017 NCYMC is ALIVE & WELL and it is our vision that this theme of joyful hope and new life for our young people will flow out into our Catholic Youth Ministry Community and the Church in New Zealand. Over three days we will consider the challenges our current generation of young people face and look to see how we can more effectively embrace them and journey with them towards fullness of life in Christ Jesus.
 
It is our hope that all people with an interest in Ministry with young people from the most junior youth leader to senior Diocesan Youth Workers, Priests and Religious will find elements of inspiration, formation and fellowship that will fuel their passion for reaching young people with the Good News.
 
Those attending the conference from the 21st – 23rd April 2017 will experience inspiring keynotes and workshops, dynamic prayer and worship, extensive networking opportunities, and plenty of useful resources and ideas. We also plan to provide the opportunity for Youth Ministers to be “ministered to” and feel like they are leaving spiritually refreshed, with mass each day and opportunities for prayer, reconciliation, praise and worship and adoration throughout the programme.
 
Remember these New Zealand National Conferences only happen every two years so don’t miss out this time round.
