HISTORY

The Youth Ministers’ Network began in the St. Paul/Minneapolis Archdiocese in the spring of 1982 by a group of youth ministers who were seeking to address “unmet needs” of youth ministers in the archdiocese. The early meetings focused on the need

  • to create a network for those who serve youth in ministry
  • to advocate for the justice issues within the profession of youth ministry (employment, job descriptions, professionalism)
  • to provide support, training, and professional development for youth ministers in the archdiocese.

The first YMN meeting was held on May 7th, 1982 at the Church of the Annunciation in Minneapolis.
