Brent Ritter — 2018 North GA UMC cohort

The Youth Ministry Coaching Program has been transformational. As a veteran youth minister, I found fresh information and concepts to encourage renewed innovation and creativity.  The content was multi-faceted and extremely relevant to the current cultural youth ministry context. At equal and potentially even greater value, I also added colleagues and deep friendships to my life. These relationships fostered an environment for me to find life-giving healing and restoration. I’m not sure I’d still be in ministry at the moment, let alone be looking forward to the future without it. YMCP has been a launching point for my next chapter and I wouldn’t trade this experience and the effect it has had on my life, family, and ministry for anything.
