Youth ministry is a seed planting ministry. Our great privilege - and, let’s be real – our great challenge is to embrace the mission Jesus gave to his disciples in John 15: 16, “I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that lasts.”


A coaching cohort with Duffy Robbins

What if there were a clear, time-tested strategy for growing fruitful disciples in your church?

What if youth ministry could be less about busyness and activity and more about fruitfulness and productivity?

What if someone could help you design a customized plan that would help you massage into the flesh and bones of your youth program a biblical vision for youth ministry?

What if there were a way of doing youth ministry so that kids don’t just “come forward”, but they “press onward”?

wise, solid, practical ongoing guidance

Our calling as youth leaders is to nurture young teenage disciples so that, after graduation, five years down the road, ten years down the road, they will still be actively living out authentic faith. But, it’s not easy. Most of us who’ve been in youth ministry for any length of time have grieved the story of a teenager who graduated from high school, graduated from youth group, and for all practical purposes, graduated from God.

At Ministry Architects, we believe this can happen! But, it’s going to take more than a seminar, more than a weekend, more than a drive-by presentation. It takes wise, solid, practical ongoing guidance.

That’s why we’re developing a brand new, application-only, coaching cohort with Duffy Robbins. Whether you’re a youth ministry vet, or just starting out, we’re convinced this one year on-line small group experience can refresh and refocus your ministry.

If there is one person, and one voice, who can train in the up-and-down task of teenage discipleship, it is Duffy Robbins. Duffy's experience, training, and deep love for Christ and kids have been the hallmarks of the most sought-after leader of youth ministry in the world. Especially in the area of leading young people deeper into lifelong faith, Duffy's theological depth, his insights into the struggles adolescents face, and his ability to teach others how to relationally come alongside young disciples in the name of Jesus sets him apart. I would, and do, sit at the feet of Duffy Robbins as often as I can.
