What is Youth Leader Training (YLT)?
YLT is a wonderful venue for those who minister to junior and senior high school students to gather together for a week of biblical training in theology and philosophy of ministry, small group interaction, and mutual encouragement, edification, and networking with fellow laborers in student ministry.
God's blessing has been evident at YLT over the last five years as we have seen youth leaders find greater encouragement in the gospel, grow in their understanding of ministry, and develop the bonds of friendship with other youth leaders around a shared philosophy of ministry.
YLT is for those who are:
» New to student ministry and feel like they are "shooting from the hip"
» Seasoned veterans who need to be personally encouraged and refreshed in ministry and in life
» Youth workers (ordained or not, full-time or part-time, volunteer or paid staff) who desire to think biblically, theologically, and strategically in community about ministry to students and families
What youth ministers are saying about YLT:
» "Easily the best training I've ever received in youth ministry. It makes all the difference when the Bible is the foundation."
» "Networking, fellowship, mutual encouragement, prayer groups, great music and fabulous teaching!"
» "Hands down, the best and most encouraging/helpful thing I do all year. Thank you! So grateful to be a part of RYM YLT!"
» "YLT was life-changing and confirmed to me that God is calling me to the ministry. Thanks for teaching us and living out the Gospel before us and for inviting us into a network of struggling youth leaders... ah, there's so much more I could say! God really met with us this past week and we're still processing everything. Thanks!"
