The National Catholic Young Adult Ministry Association (NCYAMA)

NCYAMA is the national voice for young adult ministry in the United States.

Our mission is to help build up the Roman Catholic Church's ministry to young adults in their late teens, 20s and 30s across America. NCYAMA works with local dioceses, parishes, campuses, and groups to acheive this goal by equiping them with the best resources in the field, offering training, consulting, and workshops on young adult ministry and evangelization, and networking with and advocating for Catholic leaders working with young adults from coast to coast.

It Just Makes Sense: Equipping the New Evangelization

NCYAMA is excited to launch its newest endeavor: to ensure support for the new evanglization.

Across the country, parishes and dioceses are struggling to connect with adults in their 20s and 30s, especially those who have fallen from the practice of the faith.

NCYAMA exists to equip the new evangelists in their work in reaching out to young adults: collegiate, single, and married. But we cannot do it alone. We need the support of dedicated, generous supporters and advocates like you.

Check out our campaign site, It Just Makes Sense, to find out more details.
