Welcome!

We invite your organization to advertise in the Network's journal, Connect.  

The Connect Journal is the only print and online publication that is exclusively designed to reach out to ELCA professional and volunteer congregational leaders in children, youth and family ministry.  

Connect provides an easy and affordable way to place your organization, resource or message in front of members of the ELCA Youth Ministry Network.
