Every youth pastor counts on a team of volunteers to lead teens effectively! Chris Folmsbee's 4-session DVD training class will make sure yours have the useful tools and concrete advice they need to take your church's ministry to the next level. Relevant and practical lessons cover understanding youth work; relationships and partnerships; programs and environments; and administration and logistics.
Youth pastors rely heavily on their volunteer leaders in order to have an effective youth ministry. However, most volunteers come into a youth group with a very limited understanding of how youth ministry works, and what it takes to be an excellent leader. This DVD training tool will save youth pastors time and give them exactly what they need to train up a team of volunteer leaders that will take their ministries to the next level. Author and youth ministry veteran, Chris Folmsbee, teaches on key aspects of youth ministry leadership in each session. The DVD includes four parts: Understanding Youth Work and Youth Ministry, Relationships and Partnerships, Developing Programs and Environments, and Administration and Logistics. As volunteers follow along with the relevant and practical DVD lessons and engage with the Participants Guide, theyll discover the tips and tools needed to become indispensable parts of the youth ministry.
