LeaderTreks youth ministry is a student leadership development ministry using trips, innovative training, and curriculum to help students identify and develop their personal leadership skills. LeaderTreks youth ministry is calling the church to make leadership development a core of youth ministry. Much like discipleship and evangelism, we feel leadership development is key to seeing the church grow and the culture change.
It’s our belief that the church is one generation away from a leadership void and if we don’t intentionally develop leaders, the church will struggle. To that end, we developed the LeaderTreks model for leadership development. We apply this model to missions, wilderness, adventure, and leadership training trips because we see the impact these types of trips have on students. We also develop curriculum to help youth pastors in the development process of students.
We support the local church youth ministries by providing leadership development tools and experiences designed to grow students into leaders. We have an intentional process for the development of students. We partner with youth workers who are passionate about helping develop and equip the next generation of leaders in church and culture. Our experiences challenge and change participants. Students return confident and motivated with a broadened world-view and a new vision for how they can lead and serve others.
