In 1967, a small group of Young Life ministry leaders got together with this crazy idea of training and equipping men and women for a career in youth ministry. They pitched this to the Presidents of Bethel and Luther Seminaries—and Youth Leadership was born. LOTS has changed since 1967—in our world, in youth culture AND in Youth Leadership. One thing remains constant — the need for caring, Christ-centered adults to intentionally pass on faith to the next generation. Multi-denominational to the core, we offer a unique, practical and relational approach in our training, speaking and coaching. After 50 years, we still want to be about transforming the lives of the next generation by equipping leaders, parents and churches.
ALL of you are our ministry partners, donors, alumni, friends and/or people who have been touched by Youth Leadership’s ministry in some way. THANK YOU for your support over the years. We want to celebrate God’s faithfulness to this ministry over these past 50 years. All year long, we're celebrating by posting weekly videos on our Facebook page of people sharing "I am Youth Leadership..."
