Youth Ministry Coaching for You

You’ve heard us talk before about the Youth Ministry Coaching Program and the benefits we’ve built into the program. We make sure each cohort has a plan and goals laid out, but God always shows up in ways we could never have planned. These stories tell the actual experience you get from YMCP:

YMCP had a major impact on me. Covid took away so much, especially from my ministry and spiritual needs. Getting together with my cohort kept me focused and grounded. I was afraid to join this program, knowing I would be the only Black woman, but I learned we are all one in the spirit, all loving kids and God.

YMCP provided a space for me to acknowledge the depth of my need, confront my fears, and begin to move forward in a new season of life and ministry. It was hard, and at times it hurt, but it was beautiful.

Being a part of the Women in Youth Ministry Cohort was a life-changing experience for me. As a veteran youth minister, it breathed new life into my ministry, empowered me to make significant changes in my personal and vocational life, and gifted me with connections to others in youth ministry that I will always treasure.

As a young youth minister, I lacked confidence, and I felt like I had little sense of direction for my ministry and my personal vocation. YMCP provided me with community, support, and the training that I needed to thrive in youth ministry. Our youth ministry now operates from a values-based approach to lead students to Jesus.

We’d love to have you join one of our YMCP cohorts and connect with a community of youth workers who will walk with you as you focus on your personal growth, your skills as a  youth worker, and the impact on the ministry you work with.

Cohorts are currently forming across the country: 
Level 1 in Denver, Dallas / Fort Worth, Orlando, Atlanta, Northern Indiana

Level 2 in Northern Indiana, Virginia, and North Carolina

We also have unique cohorts for Women in Youth Ministry, one in partnership with Fuller Youth Institute / Tenx10 in San Diego, and an Online Only group.

Youth Ministry Coaching Program Stories

When I beta tested the Youth Ministry Coaching Program’s first cohort back in 2010, I had no idea how it was going to transform lives. I thought it going to be cool training. I thought it was going to help youth workers grow in the depth of their thinking. I thought people would be able to share honestly with each other and see real growth in their lives. But it’s far surpassed my expectations and over these last 10 years. 

YMCP has become the premier coaching program in the Youth Ministry world with 600 people going through this year-long process. I have seen crazy awesome, only God stuff – marriages saved, youth ministries reinvented, countless youth workers staying in ministry, and quite a few deciding it was time to get out. It’s much more than a training program, it’s a growth and transformation program.

I asked a couple of people to share their recent experience with the YMCP, and you can watch what they had to say:

We are currently filling cohorts for the spring of 2021, and you can see the opportunities here: https://theyouthcartel.com/faq-item/cohorts-currently-forming/.

We also have a new online opportunity that completely reimagines the program to work digitally. Learn more about that https://theyouthcartel.com/ymcp-online/.

I would love to see you consider joining us in one of those programs.
