"The Future of Youth Ministry"

UrbanFaith.com profiles Urban Youth Workers Institute today in a feature called, “The Future of Youth Ministry” by Jeremy Del Rio. Here’s an excerpt:

“Few national partners understand the realities that mostly bi-vocational urban youth ministry leaders, many without permanent space, budgets, and staff but drowning in uniquely urban challenges, confront every day. But UYWI gets it. From top to bottom, UYWI’s staff has been there done that, and their institutional commitment to making UYWI relevant, first-rate, and affordable is unmistakable. As a result, UYWI conferences, RELOAD training events, and learning communities consistently offer both an oasis from the stresses of urban life, and safe spaces for leaders to reassess, recalibrate, refuel, reengage, and regenerate for long-term effect. …


“UYWI is more than an institute. It’s a collection of sojourners endeavoring to understand the magnitude of 21st century urban youth ministry. We may not have all the answers, but we remain committed to walk, stumble, and grow together.”
