Youth Ministry is hard… and getting harder. Students are changing faster. The Information Age has led to an Information Overload. Churches are struggling to keep up. Youth Pastors are facing more pressure than ever before. We are playing catch up.
Youth Pastors are amazing men and women whose heart and passion inspired them to invest in the next generation. As a Youth Pastor you sacrifice, you spend time, you spend money, you open your home, you cry with students, you pray with students and you believe in their future, at time even more than their parents. You believe wholeheartedly that the greatest gift you may have to offer the kingdom of God is not so much what you will do, but who you will raise up.
Here’s the question:
Who is doing that for you?
Who is inspiring, challenging and equipping you?
Do these statements describe you?
I’m a good youth pastor, but no one really taught me how to run and build a youth ministry.
I’m great at connecting with students, but I’m not sure how to plan a year of youth ministry.
I’m tired of seeing my students graduate from High School and walk away from their faith.
If someone asked me to describe the kind of student that my youth ministry produces I would have to make up an answer on the spot.
Honestly, I’m just trying to make it through the next youth service.
I still feel like I’m not sure how to do my job (even if I earned a degree in youth ministry).
We’ve got great news for you!
We’ve been there. We’ve sat at our desk and hoped that no one noticed that we didn’t really know how to do our job when we started. We’ve been stuck in the cycle of surviving week to week on another sermon and game that we downloaded or stole from the big churches’ social media feed. Been there, done that and DONE DOING THAT!
THERE. IS. A. BETTER. WAY!
Lead the Generation MASTERMIND
COACHING FOR THE HEART, THE HEAD AND THE HAND.
INSPIRE. CHALLENGE. EQUIP.
YOU NEED A COACH AND A COMMUNITY.
Our coaches are EXPERIENCED: Each coach has a minimum of ten years of full-time Youth Pastor experience. Most of them have over fifteen years. We offer combined 50+ years of Youth Ministry experience among our team of coaching.
Our coaches are DIVERSE: We have served in small churches with student ministries of under 30 students to large churches with student ministries over 400. We’ve ministered in rural, urban and suburban settings.
Our coaches are RELEVANT: We are still in the game, serving on the front lines. We are either actively serving as youth pastors or we are currently involved as volunteers in a local youth ministry.
Our community is INSPIRED: We love students just like you do and we want to make a big difference in youth ministry.
Our community is ENGAGED: Your mastermind group will be made up of other Youth Pastors who want to learn and grow. They will push and challenge you as you will do to them.
Our community is HEALTHY: If you’re not healthy your ministry effectiveness will always be hindered. We believe that a healthy community of friends is the best way for each of us to experience health and growth.
Our plan will coach you through developing and implementing the twelve core essentials of a healthy and growing youth ministry.
Mastermind Level 1:
- Personal Growth: We teach what we know, but we reproduce who we are.
- Vision: Everybody ends up somewhere in life. A few people end up somewhere on purpose.
- Becoming a 360 Degree Leader: The first rule of leadership is to lead oneself well.
- Youth Culture: We connect to a culture before we transform a culture.
- Balancing Life & Ministry to Avoid Burnout: Your first ministry is to your family. Lose your family, you lose your ministry.
- Developing an Irresistible Leadership Culture: Teamwork makes the dream work.
Mastermind Level 2:
- Student Leadership: If your students are not leading, they will be leaving. If they’re not serving, they’ll turn out selfish.
- Discipleship through Small Groups: Discipleship is relationship before program.
- Evangelism through Small Groups: Evangelism is relationship before and after an outreach.
- Relevant Youth Services: Relevance matters in your worship and preaching.
- Life Changing Retreats: Crafting spiritual encounters that become a catalyst for life transformation.
- Missions that Makes a Difference: Missions minded students are more likely to serve, give and be called into ministry.
