“The Youth Ministry Institute is on the leading edge of developing youth leaders who will impact and change the lives of kids today like few ministries can.”
-Joel Lusz, Melbourne, Florida Youth Minister, YMI Instructor & Coach
The Youth Ministry Institute is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2005 empowering youth ministers to become skilled and effective leaders.
That is the mission of YMI. But, what is the bottom line?
Youth. Youth are in the most formative part of their lives. Their bodies, minds, opinions and beliefs will change more in the seven year span between junior high and high school than in any other seven year span of their life. As they form key opinions of who they are and what they believe in, we feel it is most important that their lives be enriched by spiritually and intellectually mature adults who are capable of helping them shape their opinions and beliefs. Youth ministers function in this critical role. By encouraging youth ministers to reach their optimal effectiveness, you also help the thousands of teenagers they will come into contact with during the course of their career. Your gift doesn’t just allow youth ministers to get better at their job. Your gift changes the lives of youth in your community.
