Youth ministry has become complicated—too complicated. Why? Because we let it happen. Despite our best intentions over the years, we kept adding unnecessary layers to programs. And now, those good ideas have gotten in the way. And do. It's not anyone's fault. So we're not throwing rocks.
But something has to change. We all know it. And it's not as simple as creating another youth ministry model. This change must be fundamental. And drastic. Which is a bit scary, right? Well, it doesn't have to be at all.
YouEquip™ was started by ministry veteran, Timothy Eldred, to help churches make the necessary changes without unnecessary frustration. For nearly 30 years, Tim has served the Church as a youth pastor, teaching pastor, consultant, and trainer. He is still active in pastoral ministry locally. In 2015, he accepted the role as President of Endeavor Ministries, the oldest youth movement in North America.
Over the last few years, Tim has traveled the world and trained thousands of youth workers, pastors, and churches to follow a more biblically-balanced approach to discipleship, return to the roots of youth work, and remove the unnecessary layers that have been piled on youth programs in the past few decades.
His passion to equip the Body of Christ to empower the Next Generation led Tim to create YouEquip™ and produce the highest quality training and resources for small to average-size churches. Churches who have been overlooked and underserved. Churches who can't relate to youth programs with hundreds of teens and dozens of adult volunteers. Churches without paid youth ministry teams. Churches with limited budgets. And churches with 6-8 teens in their youth group (on a good week).
We look forward to serving you and setting you up for ever greater success as you navigate the critical changes that must take place in youth ministry to transform the Next Generation for Jesus Christ.
