Bring Leadership to Life!

Strengthen The Core of Your Ministry

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.

At the core of every youth ministry lies a central task based on God’s design. That task is to guide youth toward discovering who they are in Christ, the one who knows them, created them and desires them to 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. We want to help you – as a leader who desires to see young urban lives transformed – win!

Be Transformed!

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– While affirming the importance of transformation, many leaders embrace a transactional leadership approach. This workshop explains leadership that transforms and provides practical steps for 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? Those who endorse servant leadership often exercise a very different approach with their staff or subordinates (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 the church 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).
