After leading in NextGen for a few years, I really began to grasp the importance of personal development. Sitting in this new role of NextGen Pastor, I quickly realized that I didn’t really know what I was doing. I have always prioritized conferences and reading books, but I sensed that I really needed some personal coaching and training. It was two years of coaching with Jim Wideman that helped me fully move into my new role. In the coming years, I would send several of my staff through similar coaching experiences, knowing that it would bring them up to speed in their roles.

Let me as you a question? What’s your plan for personal development this Fall? What about your team? How are they intentionally developing this Fall? I’d really encourage you to look to Ministry Boost to help you and your team fast-forward growth in your ministry this Fall. Here are some of the options.

Ministry Conversations

Every month, we’re hosting several ministry conversations (usually based on ministry area tribes). It’s an opportunity for ministry leaders to connect with others in similar churches and roles and solve problems. Ministry Conversations have been super helpful to me over the years.

Ministry Training

We’ve assembled a pretty amazing line-up of courses that are going to be amazingly helpful. Courses cover a variety of topics like volunteer recruiting, ministry development, parent strategy and more. Here’s the actual list of training available:

  • The Volunteer Pipeline
  • Volunteer Playbook
  • Ministry Hacks
  • Aligning Your NextGen Team
  • Redefining Preschool Ministry
  • Effective Small Groups
  • Implementing a Coaching Structure
  • A Strategy to Partner with Parents

Ministry Coaching

Lastly, we’ve assembled a killer line-up of ministry coaching cohorts through YouLead Coaching. This is six months of intentional coaching through ministry strategy and highly relational connections. Your cohort will become a sounding board and a source of inspiration and accountability. Most importantly, this cohort will be a tribe you will stay connected to long after the coaching program is finished. We’re offering YouLead Coaching for the following groups:

  • Children’s Ministry – Erin English with Jim Wideman
  • Children’s Ministry – Nick Blevins with Lisa Molite
  • NextGen Pastors – Kenny Conley
  • NextGen Pastors – Kevin Monahan
  • Student Ministry – Will Hutcherson with Tom Shefchunas
  • Multisite Ministry – Kevin Monahan and John Huber
  • Women Who Lead – Cindy Fiala

So many opportunities available for you and your team.

Now let me give you some suggestions

If you have the funds and want to make a big investment in yourself or someone on your team, sign up for YouLead Coaching. You’ll get a six-month cohort to walk through ministry strategy and growth. It’s the best we have to offer. In addition to the coaching, you’ll get access to a Ministry Boost course (free on-demand and live video courses, $200 off group courses).
