Finding, Developing & Keeping Leaders
Effective youth ministry wasn’t intended to be done alone! Teenagers need an army of people to love them and point them to Jesus. So, how does a youth ministry develop a team of adult leaders who want to be part of teenagers’ lives and contribute to the whole youth ministry? That’s what this session is all about.
