My startup venture is a “Youth Worker Training & consulting Agency.” I will provide and present information in terms of the scope or overall perspective of youth ministry for the postmodern youth worker by providing workshops, speaking engagements, consulting and seminars to disseminate relevant information pertaining to all kinds of issues of Christian adolescents and teens.
Youth ministry for the most part has failed to grasp the hearts and minds of the young people of the church, resulting in falling away of our youth. In an attempt to curb the decline of youth church affiliation, churches have looked for ways to keep their youth in the churches. One strategy has been hiring youth pastors or workers (Goreham, 2004). Although there are passionate, highly motivated youth worker who have been working with children for years, most of them are not equipped to provide the skills adolescents and teens need to navigate through the difficult obstacles they face in this contemporary highly advanced globalized technical broadband connected world.
