If you want to see your students grow in faith while having an opportunity to serve, consider a LeaderTreks Mission trip.

These personal leadership resources are inside the LeaderTreks Starter Kit:

  • Youth Ministry Assessment ($20 Value)
  • REACH-GROW-GO Strategy & Worksheet ($20 Value)
  • Volunteer Role Cards for your Adult Leaders ($15 Value)

Many ministries aren’t thriving because youth workers are leading from the passenger’s seat instead of the driver’s seat. They allow the calendar, the past, or even the latest trend to dictate the direction of the ministry rather than God’s leading through them.

Getting back in the driver’s seat first requires a good, hard look at the state of the youth ministry. Use the Youth Ministry Assessment to evaluate the health of the youth ministry in the areas of volunteers, programming, discipleship, partnering with parents, and student leadership.

After some evaluation, it may be helpful to reimagine your youth ministry strategy. Use the REACH-GROW-GO Strategy & Worksheet to create a clear and simple strategy that follows the “Reach, Grow, Go” model.

We’ve included Volunteer Role Cards from our Deep Discipleship System, to help you communicate your ministry strategy to your adult volunteers in a quick and easy-to-use format.
