Whether you are clergy, staff or a volunteer jumping into youth ministry because you feel a call – or because your minister or a friend asked you to help – jumping into working with youth can feel overwhelming. Why is youth ministry important? When our Christian communities provide our young with the nurture and formation our young need and deserve, they lay the foundations of flourishing lives of faith, resilience, love, and joy.
What is the vision of your ministry? Why is listening to youth important? How do you help develop leadership in your young people? How do you support youth mental health and well-being? Explore these questions and more in our “New Youth Leader Crash Course” and find all the resources you need for training, curriculum and more in our website.
