Jim Hughes – FHUMC

BY: CYMT General


“Our partnership with CYMT has been nothing but positive.  We were fortunate to have a husband and wife team who are doing youth and children’s ministry.   Chris and Joanna Cummings have met and exceeded our expectations.  They have contributed in very significant ways to the transformation of our church. The aspect I love the most about CYMT is the “coaching” component.  I have been involved with youth ministry for many years and my experience has been that most youth workers are fairly isolated with not much visible support from anyone else.  The coaching component of CYMT provides that kind of support – a sounding board to help deal with issues and to offer encouragement.  That’s very valuable to me.
