Has faster and faster made things better and better? We don't think so. There's an African proverb that says, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." That certainly rings true for youth ministry.
If ministry that impacts and faith that lasts a lifetime is the goal, we don't think that can happen with one person working alone. We think the future of youth ministry is all of us working together to lead teenagers in the way of Jesus.
We know you're busy. Recruiting a youth ministry team is one thing – training, motivating, supporting, and managing that team is quite another. That's why we created YS Team Training: to bring youth ministry teams together for practical training, encouragement, worship, laughter, reflection, and vision-casting.
“I’ve been taking adult and student leaders to Youth Specialties' regional events for twenty years now. YS never fails to bring fresh insight, well-processed concepts, spiritual educational tools, and great games/icebreakers to these events.”
"The time spent at an event like this can bring great refreshment, vision, and training that's ideal for my leaders. I love that I can bring my entire team because it's so affordable."
"At a YS regional training event, my leaders were transformed and inspired to do ministry better and it was an AMAZING deal where I could afford to send my whole team!"
“This is an affordable experience with fantastic training for our volunteer team. To top it off, we are able to give our leaders a little bit of a getaway.”
