About US

Youth Ministry Consultants is a ministry committed to helping churches, parents, leaders and volunteers share Jesus to the next generation with clarity and passion. We simply believe that there are 3 circles of influence when it comes to passing faith onto the next generation: Parents—Churches—and Caring adults who invest in children and teenagers. Our job is to help these circles be more intentional and effective in their crucial role.

In today’s distracting world, it is essential that these influences go beyond good intentions. A phrase we say all the time is: “Hope is not a Strategy”. It’s nice to hope for things, but in today’s world, we must be increasingly strategic in our efforts.

We desire to serve any church, ministry or adult who cares about the next generation.

We were founded with the driving passion to serve the smaller, under-resourced church through the Small(er) Church Project. Thanks to the support of faithful donors, coaching and training are available to you no matter your location or budget.

YMC is intentionally multi-denominational

YMC is intentionally multi-denominational. We work with churches from a wide variety of denominations. We focus on the Main Thing–sharing the Good News of Jesus to the next generation and helping adults be more effective in sharing faith. We equip and encourage adults to build healthy, caring relationships that provide a bridge to their ministry to children and youth.
