Faith factors cohort

Through decades of ministry leadership and hundreds of faith conversations, Tiger McLuen and YMC have identified seven crucial faith factors.

This cohort offers a deep dive into the 7 Faith Factors, filled with practical ideas on how to cultivate faith that lasts in the lives of the next generation.


Every year, over one million young adults will walk away from a relationship with the church and from relationship with Jesus. Tenx10 is an initative centered around pulling faith leaders and organizations together in an interdenominatoinal, inter-organizational collaboration to see faith matter more in the lives of the next generaton. 

This fall, we are excited to partner with Tenx10 and Fuller Youth Institute to offer the Relational Discipleship Kickstart in cohort form. To receive more information when registration opens, please join the waitlist. 

ministry essentials cohort

Over the course of six weeks together, we’ll dive into core elements of success as a ministry leader. Each week we’ll begin a new topic designed to challenge and equip you for all areas of ministry leadership. We’ll talk through how to define (and communicate) your ministry vision, how to work with challenging people, how to lead a team, manage a ministry and more. Not only will we dive into practical skills, we’ll also engage in intentional community to actively apply principles in your day-to-day ministry. 

The Essentials content was established and refined by Tiger McLuen over 40 years of ministry experience. After teaching these principles at both Bethel and Luther Seminaries in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, Tiger has reformatted the curriculum to equip you for the important work you do. You’ll also be led by Rebecca Jacobson, a graduate of Bethel Seminary and 15 year ministry veteran who leads the Training division of YMC.
