Coaching Cohort for Moving Youth Ministry Online

Spring 2020

In a matter of weeks, youth ministry leaders are having to change the way we connect with youth. Advice is coming at us from every direction, but how do we decide which new tools and platforms will work for our group?

Join denominational minister for faith formation Shana Peachey Boshart and several youth ministry peers for five one-hour cohort sessions. These sessions will help you identify:

  • The digital tools that fit you and your group
  • The right content for your youth group
  • People to help you as you carry out your plan

A cohort is a group of 6-8 peers that meets regularly with a coach to work toward specific goals. This cohort will meet for an hour on Zoom every two weeks. Participants will do one hour of homework between each session. This group is offered free of charge by Mennonite Church USA. Shana is a trained coach seeking certification through the International Coaching Federation. Sign up here by April 27. The group will start in early May.


Virtual Tools for Real Youth Ministry

It seems there’s been an explosion of resources for all kinds of online ministry in the past few weeks—except youth ministry. Join Shana Peachey Boshart for Virtual Tools for Real Youth Ministry. We’ll hear from three youth ministry leaders, then gather contributions and questions from participants. Scott Roth will show us how to use gaming platforms to connect with youth, Brooke Martin will share some other ways to have youth meetings online, and Andrea Wall will show us how to use a web site as your virtual youth ministry hub.
