Conversation Days are ‘get-togethers’ of those employed in ministry to young people. Each one is directed towards children, youth or young adults with occasional combined meetings. It is an opportunity to share with those in similar ministries and hear from an experienced practitioner on a range of topics.
At YNET Conference we want to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ proclaimed and modelled to young people because, from little children through to those entering adulthood, they can experience God’s call and a vital relationship with Jesus. YNET Conference exists to provide training for leadership teams of local churches in growing their ministry to young people. YNET Conference is for any leaders involved in Christian ministry to children, teenagers and young adults. It’s a great opportunity to connect with others in similar ministries, be equipped from God’s word, be shaped by experienced practitioners, and be refreshed in gospel service.

The YNET network aims to connect ministry workers together in meaningful support relationships. If you are interested in a mentoring relationship, please contact a YNET Consultant who can help connect you with another ministry worker.
Take a look at some of the YNET articles available here.
The Presbyterian Church of Queensland takes the protection of children and young people very seriously. You can read more about Childsafe here.

If you require Childsafe training for your ministry team, please contact Stu Hoadley stuart@ynet.org.au

If you are interested in pursuing further training for ministry to children and teenagers, then YNET Consultants are available to help you consider the options available to you. This is process will be undertaken in conjunction with your local church, which should provide the primary confirmation of identifying your ministry suitability.

The Ministry Training Network (MTN) placements are a great place to start. This placement gives you the opportunity to train alongside an experienced practitioner for 1-2 years in a local church setting.

You may also like to consider theological studies to provide a solid biblical grounding for any ministry you are considering. Queensland Theological College (QTC) is the Bible college we primarily recommend, particularly if you’re considering ministry in Queensland. QTC provides a variety of courses, with subjects specifically relating to children’s and youth ministry.
