Perkins School of Youth Ministry

Perkins School of Youth Ministry is a dynamic training and networking conference for youth ministry pastors and practitioners.

Intentionally Practical. Intentionally Theological. For 30 years, PSYM has been a place where youth ministry workers connect, study, worship and fellowship as they renew their calling to youth ministry. Our goal is to nurture faithful Christian leaders in youth ministry among a diverse community of passionate veterans, volunteers and new youth workers. Every year we offer relevant ministry training from respected scholars and leaders in youth ministry and Christian education.

We pray you are wayfinding well through your first week back from PSYM 2020! #psym2020

Elizabeth Murray had a newly crafted sermon in hand and a strategy for helping a shy young person at her church feel more connected to the youth group. “I got much more than just theory,” said Murray, who is Youth Minister at Lexi...
