Youth ministry is not a solo sport, but far too often youth workers feel like they have to do it alone. We are here to help with that. Every week some of the top United Methodist youth workers offer free resources from their real-world ministries. You’ll find everything from games to downloadable lessons to coaching on how to put together a budget.
We hope that when you get online to work, you don’t feel like you have to do it all yourself. We want to be the first place you turn for games, lessons, ideas, coaching, and personal devotions.
