Youth Ministries


The Texico Conference Youth Ministries team is dedicated to making your youth experience a blessing and an opportunity for you to grow in Christ. Our goal is to:
· Collaborate with local churches in putting together youth rallies, summer camps and clean, fun filled events throughout the year in New Mexico and West Texas.
· Keep you updated on what is going on within our conference territory.
· Provide our youth and youth leaders with resources, training and seminars to become better Christians and leaders in ministry.
· Pray for you.
