- We love youth workers.
- We love teenagers.
- And we especially love youth workers who love teenagers in cities.
Because of an abiding love for urban youth workers, we understand the stresses caused by city life, including ministering to kids in the context of urban poverty. And figuring out how to equip effective ministry with limited, often out-of-pocket budgets for training resources.
We invite you to mine over 750 of the best urban youth ministry training resources this year. Supplement your Well subscription, the upcoming 360° conference experience, and 90° certification with free ammunition. Grow your own capacity, and that of your team’s, to lead well.
Here’s how you can use the UYWI Digital Library to customize training solutions for your entire ministry team this year.
First, organize training topics around key developmental areas such as: Character, Leadership, Organization, and Skills.
- Month 1 // CHARACTER: Dr. Larry Acosta‘s Reload 05-06 workshop: Being a Leader Who Remains Solid at Heart
- Month 2 // LEADERSHIP: Efrem Smith‘s UYWI 2005 workshop: Raising Young Heroes
- Month 3 // ORGANIZATIONAL: Jeremy Del Rio‘s Reload 06-07 Workshop: Bagged Lunch and a Drop of Oil: Multiplying Re$ource$ for Urban Ministry
Third, distribute the links to your team, or download the MP3 files to a flash drive and make copies for everybody, for homework listening.
Fourth, schedule monthly staff development time to process the workshop content as a group throughout the year.
Finally, please let us know how the resources bless you by commenting on this blog or in response to particular resources.
Happy Independence Day!
