The Youth & Family Service Team is primarily concerned with advancing a family-based ministry model and helping to supply resources to help the families of the International Churches of Christ to be spiritually successful. This has primarily been accomplished by training leaders both at an international level (International Conference of Youth & Family Ministry) and at a local level at geographic conferences. Resources have been made available through the www.ICOCFamilies.com website and www.GetGroundedForLife.com.
The ICYFM has been held four times in the USA, every other year starting in 2007.
The plan is to hold the ICYFM in India in December 2015 and Mexico City in 2017.
The USA will continue to address youth & family ministry needs through local geographic conferences.
