A Complete Discipleship System For Leading Intentional Youth Ministry

Too Many Students
Are Not Experiencing
Spiritual Growth

Deep Discipleship Changes That

With the help of our NEW Deep Discipleship System, you’ll train your volunteers how to disciple students. The NEW Deep Discipleship is designed to be more than a curriculum; it’s an entire system to support the discipleship efforts across your ministry.

Deep Discipleship System

Every meeting time and event generated from your student ministry will have the element of discipleship woven through it. Deep Discipleship provides you with all the tools needed to transform volunteers into committed disciple-makers, encourage junior high and high school students to take ownership in the ministry, and equip parents to lead the charge at home.

Deep Discipleship Strategy

In Deep Discipleship, you’ll follow the blueprint of our Deep Discipleship Strategy.



Student growth takes place in the context of trust-based relationships.



Intentional Programming communicates to volunteers their purpose and role.



True discipleship leads to transformation in the lives of students.



Partnering with parents puts youth workers and parents on the same team.



When given opportunities to lead, students become owners of the faith.

The responsibility you carry as the spiritual leader of a youth group can be overwhelming at times. What should I teach? What events should I plan?  Am I making a difference? This strategy eliminates the uncertainties of how to move your students toward spiritual maturity by focusing on the 5 key elements that promote discipleship in your youth ministry.

What are people saying about Deep Discipleship?

Slide 1

"I’ve been a fan of LeaderTreks for years and loved the original version of Deep Discipleship. The NEW Deep Discipleship is even more complete. In addition to great curriculum there are student & volunteer leadership options to help you invest those serving in your ministry along with parent & family strategies and mission trip resources. Even with all that’s provided, there is still room for your ministry to mold it into your culture and context.”

Cory Liebrum
Youth & Family Ministry Specialist, Center for Church Health
Texas Baptists General Convention of Texas
Slide 2

“Youth Ministry can feel overwhelming: wrangling students, coordinating events, developing leaders, teaching the Bible, leading worship. It's easy to feel like you'll never get it all done, or are doing none of it well. Deep Discipleship provides biblically grounded direction and support for youth ministers, equipping them with useful tools to tackle the many dimensions of ministry.”

Dr. Steven L. Jones
Slide 3

“This Deep Discipleship Curriculum is a wonderful and much needed resource. In my 6 years of serving as a youth pastor, one of the greatest challenges was trying to incorporate continuity to the various aspects of a healthy and thriving youth ministry. This material has been well-thought out and carefully designed to be helpful and holistic in its approach to assist those serving in youth ministry.”

Steven Platt
Pastor, Providence Baptist Church (Hattiesburg, MS)
Slide 4

"Watching teenagers develop and grow in their faith is perhaps one of the greatest rewards any student ministry and student minister may experience. Teenagers are trendsetters in our culture, and that includes being an example in their faith. This Deep Discipleship resource is an instrument that will certainly help to elevate those opportunities for spiritual growth."
