New YLT Dates Announced!

Registration has reopened!

Deer Run Camps & Retreats

Cost: $429


While there are a few additional speakers yet to confirm, we are blessed to have Richie Sessions, Les Newsom, Scott Sauls, Mika Edmondson, and Nancy Guthrie join us.  Joe Deegan and RYM Worship will be leading worship. Maybe they’ll sneak out a new release! We will publish the schedule and class lists as soon as we are able.

YLT will be a little different this year, but the goal of equipping, connecting, and encouraging you remains the same. Please let us know if you have any questions.


What is YLT?

Youth Leader Training (YLT) is an investment into the heart and ministry of all who are reaching and equipping youth for Christ in the Church. Year after year men and women from across the country return to ministry from YLT refreshed by the gospel, their understanding of ministry deepened, and bolstered through bonds of friendship with other youth leaders around a shared philosophy of ministry.

YLT is ideal for all youth ministry leaders (ordained or not; full time or part time; volunteer or paid staff; male or female) who desire to think Biblically, theologically and strategically in community about ministry to youth and families. Whether you are new to youth ministry and feel like you are "shooting from the hip" or are a seasoned veteran looking for ongoing training, YLT is for you.  And if that's not enough - we all need encouragement and refreshment from the gospel!
