The definition of Uplink is a communication channel through which a user transmits data to the Internet. We have developed two different options for youth minister and their teams to receive good training and resources. Our goal in both of these options is to bring quality speakers, create quality relationship, and develop quality Youth Ministers.
- Online – This option is one that will be seen as a short video that is about 4-6 minutes long and will have a variety of guest from around Alabama and have a heart for youth ministers. Uplink online will be available on the 1st and 15th of every month. The 1st will be focused on youth minister enrichment and the 15th will be directed toward practical youth ministry.
- On the Road – YM Link is providing two opportunities to get practical, intensive training that can be applied to your ministry. Each year we will bring in different speakers to train and equip youth ministers and their team of leaders in their specialization. We will be in two locations throughout the year, Montgomery (Spring) and Birmingham (Fall). It will also provide a time of networking that is beneficial to all.

Clear Conference- youthministry360.com/clear-conference
Raising up a generation of powerful, clear communicators . . .
For the past several years there’s been a grassroots movement taking place in Memphis, TN & Orlando, FL. These cities have hosted a gathering of next generation ministry leaders seeking to sharpen their skills as clear Bible communicators. These short, intimate gatherings have been meaningful times of collectively pouring over God’s Word, highlighting essential truth, and learning to communicate that truth in a clear, powerful way. We realized there was something special happening and knew we needed to share it with more leaders in more cities.
WELCOME TO CLEAR. A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ED NEWTON (& FRIENDS) AND YM360.
