Youth Ministry

Our website is at

Presbyterian Youth Ministry is a vital part of the life of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. With 419 churches spread throughout New Zealand PYM exists at a national and regional level to provide support to youth workers and churches through networking, resourcing, training and advocacy.

We help youth leaders meet and network with 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 provide access to many others. We provide training courses and workshops for young people, youth leaders and churches. We are also youth advocates representing 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.

Our vision is to grow Christ-centred youth ministries that encourage young people to look in, around and out as they encounter an awesome God, and become followers of Jesus who are committed to a local faith community and serving in the wider community and world.
