About this REACH Network Group

The Network will meet monthly nine times between January and November (we will not meet in July and August). 

The REACH Youth Network group will meet in collaboration with the REACH Children’s Network. The content of these REACH groups is geared toward equipping and resourcing people who work in age group ministries and will provide space for break out groups to provide community for both youth and children’s leaders. Participants should register for the group they would prefer to meet with in break-out sessions. Special arrangements can be made for those who need access to both break-out groups.
