Online training programme for volunteer youth leaders now available to UK Baptist churches

HorizonsA free online training programme for volunteer youth leaders is now available to UK Baptist churches.

Horizons is the training platform for leaders in youth and children ministry throughout the European Baptist Federation who want to develop their skills and learn more about working with youth.

It consists of four units, each with six modules focusing on major youth related topics. A module will take around 60 – 90 minutes to complete, and is based on the participant’s own experience and current practice.

Each participant who enrols in the programme is accompanied through the course by an experienced mentor – and now for the first time UK mentors are now available.

Bob-MorrisThey include the Revd Bob Morris, Youth and Children’s Pastor at Cirencester Baptist Church (pictured), who is working alongside the Baptist Union of Great Britain to make the course available in the UK.

He said, ‘I wholeheartedly commend the Horizons leadership course. Having completed it myself during my recent sabbatical I believe that it is the most accessible and useable course available.

‘You are able to go at your own pace and to receive personal comments from your on-line mentor upon completion of each unit.

‘Each unit enables you to consider your own ministry situation and so it is “alive” at all points. It’s far from a stale exercise but more of an overview of what you are already doing so it enables you to reflect on your practice and consider how you can develop and grow your current ministry.

‘My passion is to see young people reached, discipled and released to serve Jesus and to develop those who seek to do the same. If you want to develop yourself as well as your youth ministry then consider taking the Horizons course.’
