What’s the Youth Ministry Collective?

The Youth Ministry Collective is a gathering of people who love Jesus and youth and have been successful enough to know all the best mistakes. We want to be your partner in ministry, wherever you are, by letting you steal the best and worst ideas from our years of experience.

We not only want to help you have a lot of fun with your next icebreaker, we want to help you live into the richness and depth of Wesleyan theology as a youth minister. We want to give you the tools to think theologically about youth ministry and help you dig a deeper well for the long haul.

Who’s it for?

Youth ministers, youth volunteers, youth small group leaders, and anyone who loves and wants to better engage the youth in their lives.
