When a young person finds someone who believes in them and knows how to share the hope of Jesus in a context-relevant, credible way, their lives start to change.

But skilled youth workers are hard to find, and few specialist courses exist to train those called to disadvantaged communities to become excellent, enduring leaders.

That’s why we developed Youth Ministry Training (YMT).

YMT is a flexible training experience for Christian youth workers wanting to reach young people in disadvantaged communities.

Whether you are in full time ministry, a part-time volunteer or you are just getting started, we have flexible and bespoke training for you. Practical, Bible-based and hands-on experience helps you become a skilled and resilient leader for the long haul.

Training options include:

18-25’s discipleship short courses

The Essentials monthly youth work skills

Bespoke, in-house training for your church team

1:1 coaching
