Urban Youth Workers’ Strategy Seminar

Urban Youth Workers’ Strategy Seminar

This practical, relevant training seminar has trained hundreds of youth leaders in a model of ministry which emphasizes evangelism, discipleship and the empowerment of young people. The curriculum focuses especially on reaching unchurched, non-Christian young people who live in diverse communities. It teaches how to reach them with the Gospel, and take them through the stages of spiritual growth toward maturity.




In partnership with Urban Youth Workers’ Institute, RELOAD is our annual, one-day training event for youth leaders that takes place each October in Miami.
