Bring Your Whole Team

At YS Team Training 2015, your volunteers and youth ministry staff will focus on how you can best help teens to find and follow Jesus. This 2-day training event will help your team:

  • Develop skills to listen, understand, and communicate with teens more effectively
  • Make your youth group an emotionally safe place for teenagers
  • Keep Jesus at the center of all you do in your youth ministry
  • Learn to play and lead instant group games you can play everywhere
  • Grow closer as a team
  • And much more!

Team Rate

Up to 15 people from your church

Bring a team of up to 15 people from your church and pay one rate. It’s ideal for ministries with volunteers in both middle school and high school.

The more, the merrier! Bring a second team and save $100. Bring a third team and save $200. (For more than three teams, call 888.346.4179 so we can help you get the best rate possible!)

Individual Rate

Even on your own, you won't be alone here

Come on your own, or come with a small group of youth workers and volunteers. If you have 5 or less people to bring from your church, the Individual Rate is your best option. However, with 6 or more people, the Team Rate is more affordable. (Even though it’s called YS Team Training, you will benefit greatly from this training event and won’t feel isolated if you come on your own.)
