Youth Leadership Lunch & Learn
Lunch & Learn
We invite children’s ministry leaders, youth ministry leaders, associate pastors, senior pastors and ministry volunteers from the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area to set aside 3 hours (10:30 am – 1:30 pm) to focus on a relevant topic.

Our Professional Ministry Training Lunch & Learns help experienced leaders stay current in their field and network with others.

Affordable, quick and to the point. But most importantly, it is very practical.

1 Day Seminar
Our 1-day professional training seminars (9:30 am – 3:30 pm) grew out of the realization that some topics deserve more time, so these seminars provide depth, insight and discussion to give you tools you can use and apply in your ministry context the very next day.

Every training I’ve been to by Youth Leadership, has been wonderful blend of encouragement, practical application, and a challenge to grow.

Learning Cohort
Engage in conversations within a context of safety, honesty and real life application through small, dynamic learning communities which provide what you need for practical growth in your life and ministry.

Each cohort meets for 3-4 times for 2 hours to lead you into action and change as we dig deep into topics that impact your ministry setting.

Learning cohorts are great for those who want to do more than just sit and listen.

Most training seminars happen at the Youth Leadership office building near Shoreview, MN. Prices range from $39-$129 depending on length. Lunch & Learn and 1 Day Seminars include lunch.

We work hard to keep prices affordable, especially to under-resourced churches, because we believe money should never be the reason you’re not educated, equipped and encouraged.

In memory of our friend, Mike Yaconelli, a scholarship fund was created to come along side you in your ministry. It is designed for youth and children’s ministry workers like you who take a look at their continuing education budget and think “there’s just no way.” Apply or contact us for more information.
