UYC Training Course
Parent & Volunteer Leadership Training
A masterclass specifically for Christian men and women who are ready to become mentors, helpers, leaders, and guides for young people in their communities. Would you like to give vision and purpose to teens who are leading incomplete lives without Christ?
As a Christian, if you’ve ever thought…
“It’s too hard to compete for kids’ hearts, imaginations, and attention these days.”
“This generation just doesn’t seem to be interested in listening to my age group.”
“How would I even begin to do public school ministry?”
“What we’re doing at church isn’t working… the kids don’t care, and they don’t stick around.”
“Is it worth trying new methods of youth engagement?”
...You are not alone.
A mass exodus from the church has been occurring among Millennials in the past couple decades — and the trend is continuing with Gen Z. But what if we told you that the opportunities to reach today’s kids are more abundant than ever?
Teenagers and young adults are growing up without vision, without ownership of their lives, and without knowledge of the saving power of Christ. They are living self-fulfilling prophecies of poverty, addiction, media obsession, and meaninglessness that lead them on self-destructive paths. What they need is Jesus, and you can bring Him to them. That’s right — if they aren’t coming, you must be going.
And yet — how will you get in? Our laws may feel like someone tried to put a wall around schools, but they can’t put a wall around kids’ hearts. The need is great, and the doors are actually wide open. You simply need to know where they are and which keys work.
Our program provides training for building relationships with a generation of teens who are growing up with no awareness of Jesus.
Parent & Volunteer Leadership Masterclass:
In this masterclass for adults who care, you’ll discover what today’s youth are dealing with and what their deepest needs are. You’ll see what opportunities are available for you to not only serve, but to teach, inspire, and empower kids who have little to no exposure to the Gospel message. You’ll understand what matters to them, how to help them build meaningful lives, and how to train them to become leaders themselves.
