Do you know this man? He's the person with intricate headphones pacing back and forth on the worn, dew-covered turf every Friday night. He's your local high school football coach, and I would guess he has more passion for what he's doing than just about anyone else around. Certainly his players see this intensity in the way he prepares them for a game and the importance he places on results. Even the parents and community can tell how much he cares. Besides watching him on Friday nights, they also witness a person who cares enough to support the booster club and to spearhead fundraising.

Now, take a step back. Shouldn't we as youth ministers and catechists be even more passionate about our ministry and our message than a person only charged with coaching a game? Our calling is much deeper; our message is much more important. We are preaching and teaching the way to Heaven through our Lord Jesus Christ! Let's not be outshone by the football coach in our passion, depth, and breadth!

Teens today have even bigger issues on the table than high school football. You are aware of the many ways teenagers are hurting. This webinar presents a step-by-step guide to set teens, and you who minister to them, on fire for Jesus Christ and lead them on the way to Heaven.
