Lets do this together.

I'm excited about this program because I know what kind of a difference it's going to make for churches in our district: empowering a new generation of youth workers and making sure that EVERY church has a great youth ministry. 

Whether you're a lead pastor that's looking to train your volunteer team or a young pastor who's in need of a personalized growth journey with a qualified mentor, this program is going to make the difference.

Take a look at the overview here and let me know if there's anything I can do to help you get connected.
