| Personalized Mentoring From A Seasoned Pro | Leadership Confidence Like Never Before |
Support You Need During This Difficult Season
You love Jesus and feel called to serve students. Now get the individualized coaching that seasoned pros wish they received.
Let's be honest - youth ministry is DIFFICULT RIGHT NOW!
One day you can meet in person and the next you cannot.

Your students are Zoomed out - way out!

Youth ministry right now is not what it was when the year began.
One thing I know for sure, you love Jesus and students. 

Why else would you be serving in youth ministry?

And even though ministry is difficult, YOU CAN DO THIS. You just need the support of veterans, of pros, and of people who have training to deal with difficult situations.

Youth Ministry Coaching is the answer you need.

Through coaching you'll get ideas, will be challenged to grow, and you will have an advocate who is there for you when you need it most. 

NO MORE FEELING ALONE IN YOUTH MINISTRY.

Only 1 in 4 Youth Ministers have formal training.
Three Elements of YMI Coaching

Praise From Past YMI Students
"These two years have changed and challenged me in ways I both could not have imagined and in ways I knew were deeply needed...through YMI I have found more support than I ever thought existed. And in that respect, YMI has been God's very visible hand and mostly audible voice in my life."
- Britt Holdren
"YMI saved my life...One of the greatest lessons I have learned is how to be open, honest, and vulnerable with those who are ready to love and care for me...They have continuously showered me with love, encouragement, laughter, but have also not been afraid to speak truth...into my life."
- Laura Gehman
Where do you find answers to your greatest youth ministry questions?
Sure you could read countless blogs or watch endless videos.
You could ask around and "hope" someone has the answer.
You may also just keep trying different methods crossing your fingers that something will succeed.

OR

You can get direct access to a seasoned ministry professional with years of experience and wisdom to share.
Through Youth Ministry Institute Coaching you get...

...a monthly one-hour coaching session guided by our TIME-TESTED and PROVEN curriculum.
....PRACTICAL ideas and concepts that you can implement immediately.
...a mentoring relationship with a seasoned youth minister.
...coaching that is relevant to your context and individualized to your needs.

...the confidence you need to stay in youth ministry, grow a ministry, and lead students to Jesus.
If you feel overwhelmed, coaching can help you develop a healthy balance of ministry and life.
Have You Ever Felt Like No One Understands The Uniqueness of Youth Ministry?
Often in youth ministry you can feel isolated or alone as if no one understands your unique life. You may feel as though no one knows who you really are. 

You may feel like the youth ministry is different than all of the other ministries of the church. Staff members may not "get" you or the youth ministry.

Through YMI you will have a coach who will know you well. Your coach will grow to understand you, what drives you, the challenges you face, and where you hope to go.

As your coach begins to learn about you, you will feel loved and cared for in a new way that will accelerate your growth in ministry.

Your newly learned skills and support from someone who "gets you," will help you stay in your ministry for many years to come!

Students And Families Need Your Best Leadership
Six Benefits Of Professional Coaching
Heightened Self-Awareness. Self-awareness is the first step to any growth. Every leader has blind spots - do you know yours? Coaching helps you develop an understanding of your greatest strengths, your blindspots, and places that you have been growing.

Practical Tools. Coaches have years of training and experience. Through their experience they know what works and are a valuable resource to you. When you need ideas, they often have great ones to consider.

Improved Self-Discipline. No journey is easy. Ministry is difficult. To last in ministry, and respond well to the many different situations you will face, you need to have good self-discipline. Coaching will help you strengthen your self-discipline.

Greater Empathy. The ability to understand, listen, and hear what a person is experiencing is one of the greatest assets of any leader. Your ability to empathize will play a significant role in influencing students and families for Jesus. Coaching is a pathway to greater empathy.

Increased Motivation. Through your relationship with your coach, you will find increased motivation. Like a car rolling down a hill, the coaching sessions will make you feel like the road is easier. When things feel easier, you feel supported, and are given a fresh perspective, suddenly motivation dramatically increases. 

Significant Confidence Boost. Like a team with a great coach, you will feel empowered and equipped to lead with more confidence. The growing awareness of yourself, and practical tools you are given, will be the confidence boost you need to lead well.
Trusted By Pastors
"For many years now YMI has been our "go-to" consulting and training partner for youth ministry...in every case the persons we sent (to YMI) were better equipped both theologically and pragmatically to serve with success...each youth leader in which we have invested with YMI says the same thing: 'Best experience ever. I learned so much. I think every youth director should go through YMI"

- Rev. Dr. Bill Barnes
"Our youth minister didn't know what to do first to help the program become healthy. YMI was the answer! Through YMI, our youth director became educated, competent, and confident. He learned to see the big picture. He learned how to attend to relationships. He learned educational methodology and organizational skills...Thank you YMI!"
