Greetings, in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My name is Gary Pecuch and I am the Synod Youth Ministry Church Coach. I have been in my role since 2008. I am the first person to hold such a position for the Synod and I engage the role with great enthusiasm.

The position has been created out of response to the great need that we all share to pass on the faith to our young people.

The overall objective of the position is to provide assistance to congregations in the area of children’s and youth ministry focusing on developing healthy long-term sustainable ministries.

With such in mind, please browse our website for ideas, resources, networking, and event information pertaining to ministry to young people.

I also manage the Synod’s Resource Center called the “Community Sandbox”. This site contains resources on all aspects of church life and faith.

The journey begins here…
