Over 60% of young people fall away from the Church. We can do better.
The Mountains of Ministry
We'll start by diagnosing the problem. We can’t help young people stay connected with the Church if we don’t first understand why they’re falling away (and how ineffective ministry contributes to the problem).
Making a Ministry Map
We’ll create a ministry map that will help us develop our strategy. We’ll set forth where we are, where ministry needs to go, and the five challenges standing in the way of effective Christian ministry.
The Effective Ministry Practices
We'll respond to the five ministry challenges with the five practices of effective Christian ministry: transformative ministry for today’s young people living in today’s culture facing today’s challenges.

Youth Ministry workers in our parish attended a one-day preview of this course in late September and found it to be informative, illuminating, and challenging. We have had two mini-retreats as a result already and are re-thinking how we engage youth today.

Here's what you can expect from Effective Christian Ministry:
"Effective Christian Ministry" includes a free bonus module with step-by-step lessons on a variety of ministry skills including:
"Effective Christian Ministry" is for anyone who wants to lead young people to Christ. Whether you're a clergyman or a parent, whether you're a paid youth worker or a ministry volunteer, this course is for you.
To be honest, the material you'll learn in "Effective Christian Ministry" can be applied to ministry for people of all ages.
Developing a new ministry vision takes courage. And it's easier when you're not alone.
We strongly recommend that you encourage a fellow ministry worker to register for this course and take it along with you.
In fact, many parishes are taking the program together: parents and ministry workers register individually and complete the lessons on their own; then they gather for a parish team meeting to process what they've learned and apply it to the community.
No! Most of our Team have been to seminary, and we wish we had access to this course during our studies.
This course is for everyone. Because everyone can lead effective Christian ministry.
That's ok! If you're not satisfied the course, we'll happily offer you a full refund within 30 days of your registration.
No questions asked.
If you’d like to see the people in your care come to know Jesus as Lord and experience a taste of His Kingdom, then I’m inviting you to join us. Order Effective Christian Ministry and start leading effective Christian ministry today.
