Journey Program

What youth ministry leaders need most isn’t simply more easy answers to problems, more conferences and more impersonal training, but a relationship through which the youth ministry leader can be held accountable, be encouraged, and be helped to put their learnings into practice. The SU Journey program seeks to provide that relationship.

Who:  Those who are responsible for a Youth Ministry (although we may accept some Youth Leaders)
When:  Feb – Dec 2019, at the convenience of the mentor and the Youth Ministry Leader
Cost: 
TBA
