Pathfinder Leadership University (PLU)


PLU 2019 

It is important for all church workers, both professional and volunteer, to continue to learn, to be familiar with current trends and to make training part of their lifestyle. The purpose of Adventist Youth Ministries Training (AYMT) is to provide the framework for that lifelong training. At the Illinois Conference, we are proud to provide a yearly Pathfinder Leadership University to provide the opportunity for all our volunteers to prepare ourselves to best serve our communities and our Lord. We hope you join us this year!
