As Campus and Young Adult Ministers we are, in a way, professional (or volunteer) mentors and accompaniers. But where do we go for mentorship and accompaniment ourselves? The Provincial Coordinators for Campus Ministry and the newly formed Young Adult Ministry Council, in addition to being advisory bodies to the churchwide staff and advocates for our ministries, are available to you as resources. Whether you need to troubleshoot, to share your successes and failures, or just to bounce ideas around, they are here to share their experiences and expertise with you and help you find the resources you need.
The Provincial Coordinators for Campus Ministries (PCCM)
The oldest of the formation leadership teams, the PCCM are officially designated by their provinces to serve on this council of advice and to resource dioceses in their particular provinces. In their three-year terms, they convene gatherings of students and chaplains, oversee the Campus Ministry Grants program, set direction for churchwide events, track ministry changes, and help to articulate the concerns, accomplishments, and vision of the network as they observe them in their provinces.

The Young Adult Ministry Council
Meeting for the first time in December 2012, this newly appointed council follows on the good work of the Committee for Young Adult Ministry (CYAM). Unlike CYAM, the council is made up solely of active young adult ministers as they help to design a parallel team of young adults. Council members have agreed to a year term as we discern how best to structure and employ the newly-formed body.
