YMCP Cohorts We’re Filling

Whole-life Coaching Focusing on Transformation and Youth Ministry Development

The Youth Ministry Coaching Program will rock your world, build you up as a leader, and provide all sorts of insights and opportunities for transformation. With more than 250 graduates, we’re more convinced than ever about the power and value of this program.

We’re very excited to announce an amazing slate of cohorts ready to be filled and launch. Some of them are our full cohort experience of six 2-day meetings over the course of a year; others are a hybrid approach with a combination of face-to-face meetings and online meetings (which lowers both your program fee and your travel costs); and some have a particular topical focus.

In all cases, meeting dates will be collaboratively scheduled with confirmed participants in each cohort. And as always: we are willing to get creative with you on payment plans if you need that (like: paying for this out of two budget years).
