  1. ONE YEAR IN MISSION (OYiM)—Why reach the cities of the world?

  2. INTERGENERATIONAL CHURCHES OF REFUGE (iCOR)—Why are some churches such wonderful places for young people to grow and others not so much? Learn how to turn your church into a magnet for youth and young adults and a safer place for them to grow spiritually and make an IMPACT for Jesus!

Learn how to start a club in your church as well as innovative ways to grow or even recharge your Adventurer, Pathfinder of even Master Guide ministry. Also, learn how clubs around the world are making real and lasting IMPACT for Jesus in their local communities.
  4. SENIOR YOUTH LEADERSHIP 101 (SYL)---Want to minister with IMPACT to the youth and young adults in your church and community but don’t know how or just want to do it better?

It will give you a basic understanding of health principals and some simple steps you can follow to think clearer, live longer, happier and yes even look better!   #Daniel
  7. CREATIVE YOUTH EVANGELISM---What if there are new methods to share the message of Jesus and what if there are fresh ways of doing “old school” evangelism even more effectively?
