YMIM OFFERS CONSULTING SOLUTIONS TO HELP YOUR MINISTRY GROW!
Sometimes youth ministry gets stuck, requiring “disruptive innovation” to grow, engage parents and families, deepen discipleship, and solve staffing dilemmas. Does this sound like your ministry setting?
A group of Duke Divinity School professors recently published a study that analyzed effective youth ministry. The authors said, “Youth ministries become laboratories for innovation” (Duke Faith & Leadership 2014). Notably, Youth Ministry Institute (YMI) is mentioned in the article as a solution.
One of the best parts of my job is meeting pastors and youth workers. I observe the best youth ministry programs – I learn from them and share the results with our partner churches. I’d love to learn more about your church.
And, perhaps your church could use some help.
