Strengthen Your Core!

What do youth leaders desire more than anything else? To lead a ministry that transforms young lives.

There exists in the heart of every young person a pursuit of identity, the need to discover who they are. This quest is by God’s design, who created every person uniquely in His image.

Youth ministries come in all shapes and sizes. Yet at the heart of every youth ministry lies a central task, a core responsibility, based on God’s design. That task is to help youth discover who they are in Christ, the one who knows them, created them, and desires they experience life as children of God (read John 1:3, 10-13).

Transformational Discipleship allows youth to experience this kind of discovery.

Transformational Discipleship enables leaders to animate (bring to life) the leadership capacity of youth native to higher risk communities. I share this philosophy and approach to youth development in my book Building Cathedrals: Urban Youth Discipleship That Works.

I am committed to helping youth leaders maximize their leadership effectiveness. It would be my privilege and joy to help you experience what all youth leaders desire more than anything else: the transformation of young lives. 

Let us help you strengthen the core of your youth ministry. We’re here to help you win!

Consults, Workshops, Training, Mentoring. We're Here to Help!

No matter where you are in your ministry – small or large, just beginning or seasoned, church or para-church – we can help infuse Transformational Discipleship into the fabric of your ministry.

Here are some vital areas we can strengthen in your ministry:

  • 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.
  • STRATEGIC PLANNING– What does it mean to think presidentially about your ministry/organization? What will it take to lead ministry into the future? This workshop gives leaders a simple yet effective approach to strategic planning.
  • 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.

No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. Ephesians 2:10 (the Message)
