The Vision of PYM is to make Jesus known by:

  • Teaching and nurturing people in Christian faith
  • Loving service responding to human need
  • Proclaiming the gospel
  • Seeking to transform society
  • Caring for God’s creation

We aim to do this by growing Christ-centred youth ministries that…

  • Look IN…encourage young people to grow in a Christ-centred faith in God
  • Look AROUND…encourage young people to grow in Christ-centred communities
  • Look OUT…encourage young people to grow Christ-centred mission hearts to serve

What we do:


We help youth leaders meet other youth leaders in their region and around the country, to support each other and figure out ways to work together.


We develop resources for youth ministry, and through our website share them along with thousands of other resources we recommend.


Our flagship training event is Connect, our national youth leaders conference which is run in July each year. We are also available to provide training workshops in your region or church.


We represent the issues and needs of young people in the Presbyterian Church at a local, regional and national level. We are also available to act as an advocate for youth leaders and can provide advice.
