CSYMA 'LEAD' is a CSYMA National Youth Ministry Leaders Conference held in March in Canberra. LEAD seeks to draw the core leaders in Schools Youth Ministry Teams throughout the CSYMA Network to gather, be equipped in ministry and formed in faith.

The Vision


Whilst CSYMA LEAD is being run, Professional Development will be available for accompanying teachers conducted by members of the CSYMA National Staff PD Team. Sessions will include Growing Youth Ministry and Curriculum Professional Development.

CSYMA LEAD will be conducted by the 2015 post School CSYMA National Team, a Team of young people who are engaged in ministry and mission throughout Australia. In 2014, 25 post School young people were engaged in ministry through the CSYMA National Team. LEAD will begin with a Youth Rally at the end of the Youth Ministry Equipping School. This Equipping School is where the post school CSYMA National Team is formed and equipped for their year of faith and mission.
