We create thriving Youth and Children’s Ministries.
Notice that our vision focuses on the local church. We are simply leveraging what we know about ministry, empowering you to become a highly skilled and effective leader (our mission), to help the local church become more dynamic. Today’s church needs to continue to engage young people in the formation of their faith so they may use their lifetime to bring heaven on earth as Jesus instructed.
So How Do We Lead You Toward Success?
Whether you are looking to hire a Youth Minister, Children’s Minister, or both – our proven search process will help you hire with confidence.
When you use our services – you will not only find a good fit, you will find the RIGHT fit for your congregation.
No matter the level of commitment you are ready to give, or the experience level you have in ministry – our training opportunities will help you grow as a leader.
If you’re looking for conversation, community, training, and support then one of our 3-month long AFFORDABLE and PRACTICAL cohorts may just be what you need.
Perhaps you are looking for more contextualized and personalized support – our coaching will meet your needs.
Maybe you are looking for a Youth Ministry Certification – one that you can complete while working and is immediately practical in your ministry context. Our Youth Ministry Institute Certification will provide you with what you need and get you to where you dream of going! (New certification program launches soon.)
Are you looking to restructure the ministry you lead? Or are you in need of strategic planning? Our consultation sessions will help you, your team, and your leadership develop and get behind a vision for what is possible in your congregation.
As a team we strive to provide you with resources that will help you win, save you time, and develop you into an even greater leader than you are today.
We regularly publish helpful articles, produce a podcast called Making Sense of Ministry, and host a community of support in our private Making Sense of Ministry Facebook group.
Values That Drive Us
In expressing our vision and mission, the Youth Ministry Institute holds true to several values. Our practice in ministry and business will be defined by these.
In addition, we measure the development of youth ministers in three areas through our core competencies assessment. Our curriculum and coaching all support each of these areas.
The Youth Ministry Institute has a big vision. We are investing our resources into one church at a time. We celebrate each church’s unique accomplishment in youth ministry. There are success stories to be told in each community of believers. With God’s favor, we will continue to participate in what we believe to be God’s vision for the world.
