Youth Ministry Trainings

At globalLead, we know that a long-term training strategy is the best approach to have a deep and widening impact. We desire to partner with groups of youth ministry leaders in a denominational or national church alliance. Our goal is to develop an entire group of Christian youth leaders and create a team of trainers within their existing structure so multiplication of youth leadership can occur with local trainers and input.

We develop Christian youth leaders through a series of seminars so they will be able to develop, train and mobilize other youth and youth ministers/pastors.


We believe that this works best in a process that utilizes the following characteristics:

1. Biblical ministry principles that are proven to be transferable across all cultures and at all times.

2. Practical examples are used for the participants to discover ways to implement the principles. These examples are provided by the trainers, but also through group interactions.

3. Time is also set aside for the seminar participants to put their ideas and plans into writing. This enables the youth leader and the youth ministry team, along with an accompanying pastor, to have a strategic plan for one entire year of ministry.

4. Follow-up and encouragement are provided through our Youth Connections training articles as well as the next levels of training.

5. We strongly encourage those involved in the training to establish a youth leaders network with those who attended, for the purposes of sharing ideas, struggles, concerns, and victories together in ministry.

6. We provide additional advanced training, our Level 2, that assists leaders to evaluate and further develop their ministry plans and to process past successes and challenges as they learn from the experienced trainers and the participants.

7. We believe in developing skills in leaders but also the heart of the leader as well. Our youth ministry training engages not only in teaching the leaders skills for outward ministry but an opportunity for them to engage themselves in positioning their life and soul before God for further spiritual formation for themselves as well.
