Focus On Youth Ministry: Peer Ministry Training

Seattle Presbytery

Nov. 5-6, 2010

Featured speaker Lyle Griner, national director of Peer Ministry Leadership.

Peer Ministry is a program for training youth in local congregations to become actively involved in ministry leadership and to provide a welcoming and caring environment for others.  Young people trained in Peer Ministry are seen as both leaders and listeners among their peers are can become an essentially component of your church’s youth ministry. 

The two principles of Peer Ministry are:

  1. Welcoming:  developing a sensitivity to others who are not adapting or fitting in, making every effort to welcome and include others in all situations promoting diversity and acceptance.
  2. Caring:  becoming aware of the hurts and needs of those around them, living out the Good Samaritan story.  They are available as caring listeners, guiding healthy and purposeful decisions, assisting others to learn the social skills, and referring to appropriate resources when needed.

The Children, Youth & Family Center at Trinity Lutheran College is providing this training at a significantly reduced cost in order to make it affordable for congregations and organizations in the Pacific Northwest.
