What You’ll Learn

Using Jesus’ “great commandment” as our template, we’ll reveal the keys to engaging teenagers hearts, minds, and souls while inviting them into a deeper, transformational, two-way friendship with Jesus.

You’ll discover how to:

Heart Icon Heart

Practice an innovative style of relational ministry that naturally creates a highly interactive environment for teenagers, the one thing Gen Z is crying out for in their learning environments.

Mind Icon Mind

Tap into the deepest cravings of Gen Z teenagers—including their hunger to feel connected, seen, and invited into close community.

Soul Icon Soul

Create a ministry environment that helps Gen Z teenagers overcome an epidemic of anxiety and depression. We’ll show you how to partner with Jesus to “de-bug” identities—setting kids free from the demands of a comparison/performance culture.

Frequently Asked Questions

A half-day of practical youth ministry training dedicated to re-invigorate three “vital basics,” showing you how to transform your youth ministry environment into a deep-impact, faith-growth engine that is powered by authentic relationships with Jesus.

We use our R.E.A.L. approach to training, which means it will be hands-on, you’ll try things that you can apply right away, and you’ll end up retaining over 70 percent of what you learn. We also create an environment where you’ll learn from each other. All of this will be taught by training pros who aren’t reading from a script, but practicing what they preach.

Thanks for your honesty. No, it is not a big infomercial. You don’t need to use our curriculum or resources to attend or to understand how to impact Gen Z teenagers. We will have resources that you can purchase and explore, however.

This training works for one person, two people, or teams of 10. That’s why experiential learning is so powerful! Teams will walk away being on the same page, fired up to build an irresistible, Jesus-centered environment where teenagers experience Jesus—heart, mind, and soul. And don’t forget to bring volunteers and even parents! 

Child care is not provided. We love kids! But this is an opportunity for just leaders—teens and adults.

Lunch is not provided. Most participants go out to lunch with their teams afterward to debrief. Water, coffee, tea, and snacks will be provided during the event.

We understand that circumstances come up that you can’t help. This is a nonrefundable event; however, you may substitute a person in your place at any time. Please give us a call if you would like help with that.
