Urban Youth Ministry Certificate - 3 weeks away

Kara Powell | Nov 3, 2009

We at FYI are less than three weeks away from the application deadline for our Urban Youth Ministry Certificate program. We accept approximately 20 super sharp youth workers and walk with them through 2 years worth of training. Topics range from community development to a theology of suffering to raising funds and training your entire team.

We love our students. They are some of the most amazing youth workers I know. They are doing radical and courageous ministry, and they tell us that our training makes them even more effective in their ministries. I talked with one a few weeks ago who said that our training helped him better explain his theology of ministry to a potential donor and that donor gave the ministry three times as much as the youth worker had hoped for.

I am praying every day that God will bring the students that God wants into our training. If you think that might be you, contact us or check out our website. Wed love to have you join us.
