Youth Pastor Coaching



"The MCEC Youth Pastor coaching program, both the peer support and directed meetings, made my first year in youth ministry very fruitful. Having a safe place to bring questions, situations, and ideas was invaluable, and I would highly recommend it to anybody working in youth ministry for the first time."

Former Associate/Youth Pastor at Crosshill Mennonite Church


The Youth Pastor Coaching Program supports beginning youth workers/pastors in MCEC as they enter into their first formal ministry experience and explore their own pastoral identity and vocational calling.

This program will provide youth workers/pastors with:

  1. Supportive relationships with peer colleagues and lay leaders in the congregation
  2. Exposure to resources for learning the skills related to youth ministry
  3. Opportunities for processing questions related to personal vocational discernment
  4. Resources and guidance for developing healthy spiritual and relational practices
