Last month the youth worker network in my community hosted a training conference for all of our adult youth leaders and anyone else in our surrounding community that wanted to attend. We had a blast and learned a lot. We’ll be doing it again next year.
The featured speaker was Jeremy Hughey, the Deep & Wide Coach at Dare 2 Share Ministries. He spoke for two sessions to teach us what Deep & Wide ministry strategy is and ideas for what that should look like in our youth groups.
Since the other guys our youth worker network share the same heart I do to train leaders, we video recorded most of the seminars, including Jeremy’s, so we can make the training freely available to other youth workers around the world who might not otherwise have the money or resources to travel someplace to get it.
These are the seminars available:
- Deep & Wide: Session 1
- Deep & Wide: Session 2
- How to lead a small group
- Answering the tough questions
- Using music in youth ministry
- Panel discussion on teen issues
You can find detailed descriptions of each seminar here.
All the youth ministry training videos are available to view and download on our Allies website. I pray they encourage and bless your ministry.
Join our LIVE Youth Ministry Conversation today at 2:00 PM EST! The topic is, “Working with students who suffer from depression and eating disorders.” Dave Huizing, a Christian counselor from Word of Life in New York, has a lot of experience in this area and will be joining the conversation to train us on this topic. Join us using either your telephone or your computer microphone.
