A brand-new Cliff College Online course led by John Hawksworth, YFC Local Ministries Senior Manager together with colleagues from our partners Youth for Christ.
The aim of the course is to reflect on this important ministry during the changed circumstances that we find ourselves in around the world due to COVID-19. Whether you have been involved in youth ministry for many years, or are just starting out, this 6 session online course will explore new ways of reaching, leading and discipling young people, and give you the confidence to do what you are already doing only better!
It is a self-paced course, so you can work through the content as quickly or as slowly as you like. There are 6 sessions which include:
Leading in Crisis
Biblical Theology of Youth Work
Practical Theology of Youth Work
How to do it and how to reach them
The world of young people and what is happening to them
What is the Good News
The course costs £75, which is payable when you sign up. Payment can be made by credit or debit card. Each student who completes the course will receive a completion certificate.
There are no prerequisites for taking this course. If it interests you, please sign up and enjoy developing your ministry.
Each session will take about 2 hours to work through, though it's the learner's choice for the extra reading around the topic.
John Hawksworth works for Youth for Christ overseeing its local ministries in the North of England, Scotland... and Wales! He has been in full-time youth ministry for over 25 years with a wide experience of running events, youth groups, schools work and leadership training. He loves hearing stories of young people whose lives have been impacted by realising how much God loves them.
John is an MA graduate of Cliff College. He is a volunteer helper for his local church specialising with 11-14s and is often ‘wheeled out’ for some high-energy kids worship! He is married to Liz, has three children and lives in Whitley Bay - but remains a long-suffering Derby County fan.
