If you lead young adult or collegiate ministry, you know that training for yourself, your staff, your volunteers, and your student leaders is important. From online courses, downloadable documents, and face-to-face consultation, our goal is to point you in the right direction when it comes to leadership development. Here are some valuable tools that can help you in your ministry to young adults.
WANT TO START A YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY?
Every young adult ministry has a setting—circumstances that surround it. Context is a digital handbook designed to help leaders determine where their ministry is—whether small or large, thriving or starting up—and where it has the potential to go. Using the spiritual markers of community, connection, responsibility, and depth, Context examines the challenges of young adult ministry and offers practical answers to some of the most frequently encountered issues. Context will help leaders develop a frame of reference and a plan of action that will equip them to grow their young adult ministry.

Face-To-Face Consultation & Training
Many decisions today seem to come down to time and money. While it’s important to be good stewards of both resources, it’s also important to view any decision from a long-term point of view. Such is the case with leadership training. Yes, it’s an initial investment of a disciple’s time and the church’s money. But down the road, it offers exponential benefits.

WANT TO START TRAINING BETTER LEADERS?
The Bible teaches in Ephesians 4 that a healthy, unified church is the result of training and equipping the people in the church. Why, then, do only 1 in 4 churches have a plan to train? A lack of time, know-how, and expenses are real obstacles for many churches, but they don’t have to be.
Ministry Grid is here to help. Ministry Grid is a dynamic and expansive online training platform for churches to use to train leaders and volunteers, really the whole congregation. It offers an array of videos (3,000+), tracking tools, assigning tools, and group management options so your church can customize it to your needs.
