“We are providing a mentoring and coaching service to leaders, who would like to be mentored by a veteran leader in their area of ministry. If you are a youth leader, we would match you up with another youth leader. If you are launching an after school program, we would match with someone who has already launched one.”

I have been training with UYWI for over a decade. I’ve had the great opportunity to meet hundreds of youth workers who are serving and loving kids. As many have had very little training, they are excited to hear new ideas and return to their church or organization to implement them. Some have great success, but others are frustrated because they had no one to ask questions when it may not have gone exactly as the trainer had instructed. You know, trainers are great at telling success stories, but leave out the times they fell on their faces. So the leader returns to the old strategy or just gives up, because they are frustrated and fell the lack of support. I believe that for ministries to implement new strategies it is crucial to have someone to walk side by side with them as they navigate the rough waters of change. SoCal UYWI is putting together a great opportunity to over come this struggle.
We are providing a mentoring and coaching service to leaders who would like to be mentored by a veteran leader in their area of ministry. If you are a youth leader, we would match you up with another youth leader. If you are launching an after-school program, we would match with someone who has already launched one. If you work with the homeless, we will do our best to connect you to someone who can support you. If we are going to be successful at this new endeavor, we need to people who need to mentored, but also people who would love to mentor someone else. We need some Kingdom players. If this is you, check out the mentoring page and fill out the form to get this moving forward. Soon I will hopefully have some great stories to share on this blog.
