101: Relationship Building

Let us help your team become experts in building relationships with students.

The first step to creating an intentional youth ministry is relationship building. The capacity of your youth ministry is determined by the number of adults in meaningful relationships with students, but few volunteers enter ministry with the skills and confidence to pursue students toward the purpose of discipleship. Intentional Youth Ministry 101 equips your volunteers with the practical skills necessary to build relationships with students.

A combination of interactive activities, assessments, and discussion-based teaching sessions will promote a unified vision in your team, inspire conversation about the barriers to relationship-building, and provide opportunity to hone the skills needed to cultivate meaningful relationships.

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding the Five Pillars of a Healthy Youth Ministry
  • Navigating obstacles in the Minefield of Relationship Building
  • Growing capacity through Transformational Relationships
  • Determining ways to Minister to Busy Students
  • Answering the Four Cries of a Student’s Heart
  • Discovering passions through an Adult Volunteer Sweet Spot Assessment
  • Pursuing students through 100 Questions
