YCM Director Update

Tim Surratt resignation

It is with deep gratefulness that the Youth Conference Ministry Board has received and accepted the resignation of our friend, Tim Surratt.  Our YCM Board appreciates the leadership of Tim Surratt during the past seven years, and we are grateful that he was called to take the reins of YCM after Chuck Neder’s retirement.  Tim Surratt will continue as an Anglican rector in Charleston, South Carolina.  Please pray and give thanks for our friend and brother in Christ, Tim Surratt.

Many of you have heard this past week of the passing of our founder, Chuck Neder to a massive heart attack. We are all giving thanks for how the Lord used Chuck to grow a grass-roots ministry called Fun in the Son, the Great Escape, and Son Servants from 1975 to 2015.

We want the family of Youth Conference Ministries to know that we are continuing to give the Lord Jesus His praise, honor, and glory for the five camps we had in 2022.  Twelve hundred fifty middle and high schoolers came to camp this summer, and we are excited to see how the Lord Jesus prepares YCM for the summer ministry for 2023. 

We are putting our trust in our Savior, Jesus Christ, to guide our steps as we move forward in this Youth Conference Ministry.  We are holding onto Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we all ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever.”
