A National Youth Committee composed of youth ministry leaders from various regions of Canada serves as a sounding board for Mark and Alison.
Youth Ministry has a long history in the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada. Some of our current programs such as Bible Quizzing stretch back to the 1950's. Pitch n Praise began in 1974, and JR Pitch, it's Junior High counterpart began in 1994. Our first YouthBuilders Team launched in 1975. These ministries have withstood the test of time and EMCC youth is continually experimenting with new initiatives which serve to strengthen youth ministry in the local church. One recent example is LeaderFace, a junior-high leadership retreat launched in February 2016 at Charis Camp in Chilliwack, BC.
In the year 2000, The Centre for Student Leadership was created to take YouthBuilders and other leadership training initiatives beyond the EMCC. The Centre For Student Leadership was renamed Ledge Leadership in 2013.
