We uncover together the “why’s” and the “how-to’s” of gospel-centered youth ministry. Even if you don’t have a mentor or any other training program, you can use this course to start well and learn from experienced youth ministers what works well for them, as they disciple students to life-long faith in Jesus Christ.

How it will help: 

For a youth minister who would feel lost in their first year of youth ministry on where to even get started. Oftentimes youth ministers receive very little training, are thrown the keys and told “you understand kids” here you go. 

Who it is for:
Head pastors or elders who are looking to better understand the purpose and vision for youth ministry. Giving them guidance on how to work with their youth minister. Also for church search committees who are responsible for making the youth ministry hire.  

What you will learn: 

  • How Does the Great Commission Impact Your Youth Ministry Vision and Student Discipleship?
  • What Can I Learn from the History of Youth Ministry?
  • What Is Moralistic Therapeutic Deism and How Is It an Enemy of the Gospel?
  • Why Should the Gospel Be at the Heart of All Things in Youth Ministry?
  • How Can a Head Pastor Effectively Support and Manage a Youth Pastor?
  • How Does a Church Search Committee Make a Good Youth Ministry Hire?
  • What Do Church Leaders Need to Know about Youth Ministry?

How it will help:
Bridging the gap between the youth minister and head pastor/elder helping them work together to be on the same page for the vision of the youth ministry. Also helps the church search committee / head pastor know what to look for when hiring a youth minister.

Who it is for:
Youth ministers to use to train their youth leader volunteer (this could be a youth group volunteer, Sunday school volunteer, etc). These training videos are meant to equip and resource the church. So a youth leader volunteer would not be buying for themselves, but the youth minister would be interested in this course because it would help them train their volunteers (a task that typically falls on the youth minister to do themselves).

What you will learn:

  • Big Picture Foundations of Youth Ministry
    • How Does the Great Commission Impact Your Youth Ministry Vision and Student Discipleship?
    • What Can I Learn from the History of Youth Ministry?
    • What Are Important Foundations for Youth Ministry?

  • Practical Tools for Youth Ministry Volunteering
    • How Do I Build Relationships with Students?
    • Panel: What Is the Role of Relationship in Discipleship?
    • How Do I Have Spiritual Conversations with Students?
    • What Role Does Evangelism Play in Youth Ministry?
    • How Do I Put Boundaries in Place to Ensure That Students Are Safe?

How it will help:
It takes a lot of time for a youth minister to yearly train their volunteers. Especially since volunteers can fluctuate from year to year. Instead of having to take a whole day or afternoon to host an in person training (that can be difficult to get volunteers to show up to) youth pastors could provide this course for leaders to complete on their own time.

Who it is for:
Youth ministers to use to train their bible study volunteers. It also takes a lot of time to train your Bible study leaders on how to effectively lead a bible study. This course, coupled with our curriculum, is an excellent resource to put in the hands of bible study volunteers to give them the ability to teach a gospel-centered lesson.

How it will help:
It takes a lot of time for a youth minister to yearly train their bible study volunteers. Especially since volunteers can fluctuate from year to year. Instead of having to take a whole day or afternoon to host an in person training (that can be difficult to get volunteers to show up to) youth pastors could provide this course for leaders to complete on their own time. All of these videos are resources that help leaders to effectively teach the Bible to students. This course is just as much for the youth minister as it is for the bible study leader. The course also helps equip youth ministers in their bible teaching to students.
