Course Overview

Harsh news: Fresh research confirms that practices used by nearly every youth ministry on the planet subtly ease Jesus out of the spotlight and into the shadows. Which means your well-intentioned strategies for prompting spiritual growth in your youth group might actually be fatally flawed.

Good news: When your ministry’s everyday practices, strategies, and activities all orbit around Jesus, everything changes. Your teenagers discover who Jesus really is—and who they really are. Students grow, deepen, and find their true identity in Jesus.

In this course you’ll discover how to craft a ministry that magnetically draws teenagers into an abiding, nurturing, challenging, life-changing friendship with Jesus.
