Foundations of Sustainable Youth Ministry

In the world of youth ministry, there are a handful of constant factors that thrive over the long haul.  This seminar introduces participants to those factors and offers a strategic design for instilling these foundational patterns into the fabric of any youth ministry, regardless of its model.

This workshop focuses on:

  • ∙ The Anatomy of Stuckness
  • ∙ The 411 on Sustainable Ministry
  • ∙ Working Together: Building Teams that Win
  • ∙ You Are Here: Assessing Your Own Ministry.
