The YMI trainers

Our program for Training the Trainers of youth leaders around the world is Strategic,  Structured and Effective.

01. Strategic

YMI’s “training the trainers” strategic approach, provided through Centers for Youth Ministry is culturally appropriate and provides a biblical philosophy of youth ministry combined with practical hands-on application.

02. Structured

Youth workers receive their training through either informal conferences or in national Christian colleges and seminaries providing degree studies at varying academic levels, taught by YMI-trained national professors.

03. Effective

Individuals are trained in biblical principles of youth ministry and practical, culturally appropriate methodology which increases the national leader’s potential for more effective evangelism and discipleship with their own youth.
