Youth Ministry

Join the Mountain Sky Youth Council! 

We want to visit your youth group!

Amanda and Court are on a mission to spread the good word: youth are not the future church, but the NOW church, and their voices deserve to be lifted up at all levels of the church. Amanda and Court want to visit you and your youth group virtually or in person to tell your youth about the youth council, and invite them to get involved at the conference level to create a ripple effect in the UMC that can last for generations to come. They also want to hear from your youth about how the conference could do a better job of involving, uplifting, and serving youth throughout the conference.

Fill out a Google Form where you can express your interest and find a time to invite Amanda, Court, or both of them to your youth group.

For more questions, contact Court at or Amanda at We can’t wait to spread the good news with you!

You can also download the flyer to help spread the word about Mountain Sky Youth Council, and get youth involved!

Mountain Sky Confirmation Retreat @ Buckhorn Camp 

Saturday, May 20th (options to stay overnight if needed) 

The Mountain Sky Conference invites you to bring your confirmands to camp for a day of confirmation activities, and celebration. This day works well as a confirmation kick off event, mid-way point or closing retreat based on when your church begins or ends its confirmation. It can also act as a confirmation program for churches that don’t currently have something to offer their students. During the day confirmands will be led through five different sessions. 

Buckhorn Camp is located in the mountains west of Fort Collins, CO. For more information on the camp visit their website:
