Resources for the Transformational Leader

Strengthen Your Core!

What do youth leaders desire more than anything else? I believe it is to see the lives of the youth they serve transformed.

Residing in the heart of every adolescent is a need to discover their identity. This quest is by God’s design, who created every individual uniquely in His image.

This places at the core of every youth ministry a central task based on God’s design. That task is to guide youth toward the discovery of who they are in Christ, the one who knows them, created them, and desires they experience life as children of God (see John 1:3, 10-13).

Transformational Discipleship allows youth to experience this kind of discovery. Transformational Discipleship  animates (brings to life) the leadership potential of youth native to higher risk communities. 

Let us help you strengthen the core of your ministry. We are committed to maximizing your leadership capacity. Let us help you, as one who also desires to see young urban lives transformed, win!

Be Transformed!


A year-long mentor/trainer relationship.

Design to meet each ministry’s unique needs.

Includes approximately 80 hours in online training/coaching, and two 3-day onsite observations and workshops.

Guides leaders/leadership teams to infuse Transformational Discipleship into the core of their ministry and transform youth into Emerging Leaders.



BECOMING A TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADER– Many leaders, while affirming the importance of transformation, embrace a transactional leadership approach. This workshop explains leadership that transforms, and provides practical steps in becoming a transformational leader.

CREATING A DISCIPLESHIP CULTURE– Discipleship is more than Bible training or a catechism class. It involves “walking with Jesus” in the context of life. This workshop shows leaders how to create discipleship-rich ministry environments.

SERVANT LEADERSHIP– What does it mean to lead as a servant? Often those who endorse servant leadership exercise a very different approach with their staff or subordinates (just ask your staff or subordinates!). This workshop helps leaders understand servant leadership and what it looks like in an organizational context.




What does it mean to think presidentially about your ministry/organization? What will it take to lead ministry into the future?

This two day workshop gives leaders a simple yet effective approach to strategic planning.

Designed to help leadership teams establish organizational integrity and congruity with the goals and purpose of Transformational Discipleship (form follows function).
