Every youth pastor wants to develop leaders in their ministry, but the path isn’t always clear. How do we grow our own leadership, and how do we encourage the growth of leaders in our ministry? By diving into the Leadership Pathway, you’ll learn a simple, practical, and straightforward approach to leadership development that can work for anyone.


Our leadership forum takes place each fall to provide every youth leader in our region a gathering place to be encouraged and equipped in strategic ministry, family life and personal walk with Christ through connecting with each other and hearing from highly respected ministry leaders. This year our speaker is Doug Franklin, president of LeaderTreks (bio below).
