Youth Ministry Training

In partnership with Souster Youth Trust we are re-launching Youth Ministry Training in September 2019.

Ten sessions on key issues in youth culture – with theology, key information and a ‘ready-to-use’ session for your youth ministry.

The familiar stuff

As you’ll see in a moment, we’ve made some big changes. But we haven’t changed everything…

YMT still happens because we want to see the lives of young people impacted by the Good News. We still believe in youth ministry and you incredible people who make it happen each week. We still want to learn together about young people and keep asking the hard questions about how to continue the work Jesus started.

Once filled with home-cooked food we’ll get stuck into a fun-packed evening. As before you’ll get a course folder with all the handouts, free books or resources, and hear from local and national voices.

IN A NUTSHELL: Youth ministry is vital and we think you are amazing! You get: dinner, 10 talks on key issues, free books or resources, and loads of encouragement

The new stuff

YMT has a whole new feel. There is a new format and new topics too.

We’re going to spend the evening exploring just one topic. Our speaker for the evening will unpack 1 of 10 key issues facing young people today and what a theological response might look like. Not only that, our speaker will write a complete session on that topic for you to edit or deliver with your young people. You can take it home that evening.

Another new feature will be the option to; join the speaker Q&A, join a discussion group, or enjoy some space to reflect and plan.

The evening will finish together as a larger group where we will be led in worship or prayer.

IN A NUTSHELL: 10 issues + theological responses. 10 ready-to-use sessions. Share your ideas and hear from others. Q & A, discussion group, or find space to reflect/plan.
