This was an unforgettable training experience that has left me a better youth worker than when I first started. The cohort not only offered me vital ministry education but was equally concerned about my spiritual formation and development as a youth leader. My experience during this time has helped to shape my personal and ministerial values and I have been greatly impacted by the insights of everyone in my cohort, who have become an asset in my life. I strongly urge anyone who is working in the field of youth ministry to make this experience a priority for yourself and for your ministry. After 15 years serving in the field of youth ministry I can say with confidence that this was easily the most impactful experience I have had in regards to youth ministry leadership training and spiritual development.
