Description

How would you like grow your youth ministry, church or your team to the next level?

I have been working with young people for many years now and I wish I would have had a course like this when I was barely starting out in youth ministry.

In my frustration of trying to get my youth ministry to grow, I tried all sorts of things: ( See if you have tried any of these )

  • I have tried games

  • I have tried ice breakers

  • I have tried hyped events

  • Compromising my standards so that young people would like to be at youth night

  • and all kinds of things to bring growth

I have over 30 years of experience in Youth Ministry and would like to walk you through step by step on how to break growth barriers in your ministry.

Really great tips and key points on building a team for Youth Ministry. I feel like I know where to go from here to start to build this team and work on my passion/purpose/vision for our church youth ministry. Thank you Pastor Dre! - Nakore Townsend 


Thank you for the course! It saved my time to have a general impression how to establish youth groups and lead them to the common vision. Eye opener for me from the course was not to concentrate on working on the needs of young people, but work on to find out their passion, determine their power spot, which will help them not to belong to the vulnerable groups. Best of Luck!  - Sopio 

Even though this course is designed for Youth Ministry, don't let that stop you because it can be used to build and bring solid growth to any ministry and even a Church.

This course will equip the student on how to break growth barriers and take your ministry to another level using the team concept.

The course should take you around 1 hour to complete and will leave you with the necessary tools you need to bring numerical and spiritual growth to your youth ministry.

In this course, I will walk you through step by step on how to get started using the team concept to build a solid and relevant ministry.

I will be using

  • video,

  • text,

  • images,

  • power points,

  • quizzes and more.

  • I even give you a way to contact me personally if you have any questions along the way.

This was a solid course. Very practical steps to unifying and expanding your youth ministry. You can tell the instructor care about his students, as well as the youth he pastors over; he didn't hold back on his knowledge and concepts that have worked for him. This was a good course. I will implement many of these concepts in my ever growing youth group - Audi Lynch

Clear and Concise Content and easy to follow. Course Provided practical strategies on how to grow a youth ministry with a vision in place. My take away is "We use Ministry to build people not people to build Ministry." PEOPLE focused is our goal when building the youth. Only thing missing was a downloadable Checklist and Content Summary. Pastor Dre is certainly enthusiastic and passionate about youth ministry. He is fulfilling purpose and potential in "Power Spot."  - Shannon Thorne-Brackett 


Not only that, you can also feel free to contact me if you have any questions once you finish the course.

The course is structured in 4 segments for you to get the best out of the class.

1. You need to have a vision - This brings your team together

2. Establish the right ministries - Allows others to use their gifting and passion

3. Choosing the right team players - Will help you to have a very productive team

4. Potential for the purpose - Powerful class teaching us that we have the ability to do what God has anointed and called us to do.

I believe every leader that wants to make an impact and build a lasting youth ministry or ministry in this generation for the Honor and Glory of God should take this course.
