Welcome to the YMS Blog

The Youth Missionary Society is made up of female youth ages 13-21 with male youth of the same age as honorary members. The society has been successful at blending issues with missions and continues to do so.

This blog has been set up for the members of this society to chat, comment and speak on anything they choose, while at the same time, learning more about the Youth Missionary Society. Enjoy!

What is the Dorothy S. Johnson Y Retreat?

In 1984 then, Mrs. Dorothy Johnson presented the idea of a General “Y” Retreat to the Executive Board. With the blessings of the Board she organized and coordinated the first General “Y” Retreat on the campus of Livingstone College in Salisbury, North Carolina, held in June of 1985. Its purpose was and still is to address many of the contemporary problems and spiritual needs of our youth, to explore Christian solutions to the same, to foster their personal Christian development, generate a greater sense of missions, broaden their circle of friendship and heighten their Christian commitment.

Who Should I Attend the Y Retreat?

Although the retreat is geared toward members (female) and honorary (male) members of the Youth Missionary Society and their friends ages 13 to 21, Youth Secretaries, chaperones other interested parties are welcome to attend.

What Can I Expect at the Retreat?

This weekend will prove to be a fun-filled, energy-packed, anointed experience with comprehensive workshops, valuable information and unforgettable entertainment. Here are a few highlights: Stuffed animal donations to local Children’s Hospital; Special NCNW (National Council of Negro Women) Workshop to emphasize Mrs. Michelle Obama’s obesity campaign initiative; the Vickie Awards; Relationship Enhancement and Break the Cycle – Domestic Abuse Discussions; and a Holy Ghost Party featuring Christian Rap groups Neptune7 and ElectionSure.

What Else Should I Expect at the Retreat?

The Vickie Awards ceremony will be held to celebrate the accomplishments of our Youth for the 2009-10 school year. There will be a formal event during the retreat to honor those who have reached high-level achievement in the areas of Academics, the Arts and Sports (applications online or in the Youth Missionary Society’s Official Study Guide). Applications are due no later than June 28, 2010.

Each retreat participant is asked to bring a BRAND NEW stuffed animal to the retreat. We will donate the animals to a local Children’s Hospital.
