What youth leaders are saying:

"I am the Bread of Life." Just being reminded of the fact that ministry is not my bread. Jesus is. That's huge."

"Y’all have been such a great resource to me in a time where I’ve been super stressed and unsure about my future in ministry. Thanks for your encouragement and wisdom!"

"Nancy Guthrie’s themes were super helpful for my thinking with regards to preparing lessons."

"The RYM Philosophy of Ministry session was definitely the most helpful teaching of the week to me."

"I liked the encouragement as well as the practical applications to ministry..."

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!
