This 65-minute video training course is broken up into three sessions to give you the information and tools you need to grow your church as you equip young people to live on mission and IN ministry.
What’s the purpose of youth work? Every time we ask that simple question of youth workers, we get a variety of answers. So we’d like to save you some mental energy and just put it out there—discipleship. Our task is to teach young people to follow Jesus Christ and find their place in his cause. That’s the objective of youth work in a nutshell.
But how do you consistently accomplish that outcome? What model or method do you apply? More than likely, you’ve tried your fair share of them. And when you eventually leave, the next person will come in and try something completely different. So what if there was an approach to producing disciples proven to work all of the time?
Well actually, there is. And with it comes job security. Affirmation. Even breathing room. It’s called youth IN ministry. No, this isn’t another slick way to say youth-led ministry. It’s so much more than that. We’re talking about a process of training young people in the church—as the Church—to live on mission and do ministry themselves.
Here’s the bottom line: youth IN ministry is a biblically balanced approach to youth work that puts adults and young people in their proper roles. Youth are free to dream, discover, and develop missions and ministries of their own while adults model, mentor, and mobilize young people who are experiencing God working through their lives.
So stop programming. Start training. Stop doing ministry for youth. Start equipping youth to do ministry. It’s just better. And it’s the reason you said yes to being a youth worker in the first place. We can’t wait to teach you how simple it is to make this mental shift and build a youth program that keeps teens engaged with Jesus for a lifetime.
