Synod Youth Ministry Team

A group of youth and adults from across the Indiana-Kentucky Synod met together in April 2018 to do some visioning and planning for what synodical youth ministry might look like.  It was determined that we would form a Youth Ministry Team comprised of both youth and adults and that each meeting would have a time for youth to meet together, adults to meet together, and a time for both groups to come together.  We are in the process of forming this new team.  If you would be interested, or would like more information, contact Pastor Dan Fugate at or 317.253.3522.


Youth Ministry Resources


Pastor Dan Fugate serves as Assistant to the Bishop for Discipleship in the Indiana-Kentucky Synod.  He stands ready to partner with you and your congregation to help you develop a clear plan for faith formation, including youth ministry, and provide resources necessary to help your members grow in faith.  Faith formation and youth ministry resources, networking opportunities with others congregations and leaders, planning, training, and support are some of the ways he can assist.  Contact Pastor Fugate at or by phone at 317.253.3522.
