Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Ministry in a Minute


After at least two years, the Conference Council on Youth Ministry met Oct. 2 for their Fall Summit at OKC-Village. Youth from nearly every district came to participate in group building, officer elections and worship. CCYM attendees also joined the UMW for officer installation and to hear a message from Clara Ester, a United Methodist deaconess who was with Martin Luther King, Jr. when he was shot.

The newly elected CCYM officers are listed from left to right.
