Leadership Forum is a resource of renewal for any adult who loves youth and loves the Lord. It focuses on personal spiritual development, evangelism training, and critical issues related to working with youth.
Leadership Forum seminars are an opportunity for adults who serve students to meet together to address their individual needs in ministry. The leader will lead some seminars, invite experts to lead other seminars, and still reserve other sessions for the group to brainstorm and counsel one another in the betterment of their ministries.
Leadership Forum is supplemented in part by Jesus-Focused Youth Ministry materials.
