The Training

The "Be With Training" is designed for:

  • Volunteers who are currently interested in mentoring teenagers.
  • Paid Youth Workers who are equipping others to mentor students.
  • Student Peer Leaders who are living out 1 Timothy 4:12 and desire to invest in helping others know and follow Jesus.

Having mentors to model for students how a Christ-follower lives their lives is the blueprint for spiritual transformation. Students today need someone they trust - someone to listen to them, to help answer their questions, to encourage and challenge them to be a committed Christ Followers. Students need mentors to teach them skills and spiritual disciplines they need in their lives now to become the difference makers that God has called them to be.

We all agree that mentoring is the most effective way to ensure spiritual transformation is happening in the lives of our students. However, the truth is, very few youth leaders and their ministries are being intentional and strategic on building a mentoring culture.

The "Be With Training" will help you and your team have a clear plan on how to mentor students and reach a generation for Christ.

The "Be With Training" event is focused specifically on volunteers and ministries that are developing mentoring values and strategies.

We believe that the most important mentoring opporunity and call begins at home, with Parents intentionally sharing and passing on their faith to their kids. If you are interested in training designed to encourage and equip parents and family ministry opportunities, please consider our "Home Field Training" event. It is designed specifically with Parents in mind! Please contact us if you are interested.
