Great leaders have one thing in common, and that is that they never stop developing. A Next Level Leader is one who is continually seeking knowledge and growth and is committed to constant learning. It makes them knowledgeable, trustworthy, and reliable.
 

Through our Y&D Next-Level Leadership development programs, we want to create a space for community, strategic training, and mentoring that will Care, Affirm, Resource, and Encourage our next-gen leaders and students as they run with perseverance the race set before them (Herb. 12:1).

 

The Y&D Next-Level Leadership program will be a 5-month training and mentoring resource for next-gen leaders (full-time, part-time, or volunteer) seeking to build a healthy and growing ministry and personal leadership development. This program will also serve student leaders (ages 14-17) that have a call from God on their lives and have shown leadership potential.

 

Three program will be divided into three different groups that will equip the three key leadership areas within next-gen ministries: Youth Leaders, Children Leaders & Student Leaders. Each month, each cohort will consist of training content along with a virtual meeting with a group mentor and fellow leaders. Regardless of ministry size or time served leading a ministry, you will be equipped with tools and relationships to help you and your ministry develop new levels of impact and influence.

This year we will also be hosting special sessions at 6:00 PM for leaders who do not have an established Youth or Children's Ministry or have just started the Youth or Children's Ministry at their church. These sessions will focus on the nuts and bolts on how to start a Youth Ministry.

YOUTH & CHILDREN

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

For our Youth & Children's Next-Level Leadership cohorts, we will partner with two amazing ministries that help equip and mentor next-gen leaders across the country. Lynn Swank serves as the Children's Discipleship Facilitator for Pathway Press and will lead our Children's Leadership Cohort. Lynn comes to us with 30+ years of ministry experience as a children's pastor, conference speaker, and ministry mentor. Eran Holt is the director of Lead The Generations and will lead our Youth Leadership Cohort. Eran comes to us with over 25 years of ministry experience as a youth pastor, evangelist, and leadership coach. A passion fuels both Lynn and Eran to inspire leaders to become spiritual mothers and fathers who will raise up an army of students to lead their generation.

STUDENT LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

This program is designed for students (ages 14-17) who feel a call in their lives to be leaders in their generation. We believe that God is the one who calls, but He utilizes our spiritual covering to confirm that call in our lives. A pastoral recommendation form will be required for a student to participate in the program. While there will be no cost to students who participate in this program, students who desire to serve in the 2024 Youth Camp Season are requested to participate as part of their preparation to serve. Students who participate in the Next-Level Leadership program will be prioritized when filling the student staff positions for the 2024 Camp Season.
