What are the marks of effective congregational ministries that establish faith as a vital factor in the lives of young people? A national congregational study entitled Exemplary Youth Ministry (EYM), completed in 2003, explored this question. First Third is dedicated to sharing the study’s findings and equipping ministry leaders to foster exemplary youth ministry in every church. Through their website, congregational leaders will find practical tools such as twenty free and downloadable “application tools” to help them translate the insights of EYM for their unique contexts. There are also blogposts and video resources. Complete results of the EYM study including a discussion and ministry-assessment guide are also available at the {{EYM Library |}}.
