Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM)

The Conference Council on Youth Ministry is a group of students and adult advisers who are the voice of youth in the Baltimore-Washington Conference. Students in grades 6 through 12 join CCYM to organize conference-wide training, service and mission projects and events. They also represent youth during the Annual Conference meeting in June each year and at the Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference every four years.

Our meetings are usually held at the BWC Conference Center on the third Saturday of each month, unless we have a special event.
