The purpose of the ministry team is to provide an atmosphere of intense accountability and to encourage spiritual growth in the teens. Additionally, the team ministers to area churches and at local events through music, drama, and testimony. The ministry team is composed of sophomores through seniors from Lima area high schools. Tryouts are held for ministry team each year in April. The students who make the team are those who exhibit a desire to grow and be pushed in their spiritual walk. Those on the ministry team are mentored by staff and YMI students throughout the year. In turn, they are encouraged to mentor underclassmen in their school. The schedule for the ministry team can be found below.
