The purpose of this training is to equip our partner ministries with the quality tools and resources needed to realize their vision for reaching the youth (grades K-12) in their communities. We commit to partnering with them with a wholistic approach to the gospel of Jesus Christ, using the strategy of win-build-send. An "in-your-life" mentoring approach is a high value of ours that carries throughout our training. We encourage a biblical model of discipleship with low youth-to-adult mentor ratio (5:1).
In addition to the training and coaching, the Cru Youth Development team journeys with the local Cru staff and partner ministry directors and pastoral staff. We are here to help leverage such strategic partnerships as Christian Community Development Association, Urban Youth Workers Institute, YouthPartnersNet, and SnowRidge Camp, helping to further equip these committed teams for a lifetime of ministry to their youth.
We desire to see the multiplication of passionate followers of Christ and transformed communities in the urban areas across the country through the tool of S.A.Y. Yes! Centers for Youth Development®.
