It takes a community to think theologically.  More importantly, it takes a community to give and receive ministry.  Youth Ministry Booster provides just the kind of space needed to think theologically with each other about youth ministry.  But more importantly, it provides the community that can support the ministry God has called you to, and in turn, minister to you.
Being part of this community will enrich you in all sorts of ways.

I've met many incredible leaders over the last 2 decades in student ministry; but then there's Zac and Chad. Two guys with a zeal to invest in those who lead the next generation that is literally contagious.  In a world where training opportunities for student ministry are a dime a dozen, these guys understand the trenches you serve in. Their community is what you want as you work tirelessly to raise up a generation that lives for the fame of Jesus!

At Youth Ministry Booster, Mastermind Groups are monthly video conference meetings of 10 or less youth ministers that meet with the intention of growing its members through professional accountability (hard-work) and soul care (health).  Click here to learn more. 

How Long Do Mastermind Groups Last?

Mastermind Groups are seasonal and typically last 6-9 months. You may continue with your group or opt for a new or different group at the end of your group's cycle. 

Will This Work With My Schedule?

We think so! One of the key features of Youth Ministry Booster is scale. We have lots of Mastermind Group meetings so if you can give us just a couple options we can match you to a best fit group. 

What If I Miss A Meeting?

We get it! Ministry is busy and unpredictable, your group exists to serve and grow you. If are going to miss, try and message your group or host and let them know through our social media platform so we can know how to pray for you. 

Can I Pick My Host?

For your first Mastermind Group we will help match you to an existing group based on your availability, ministry priorities, and host availability. Future groups will be more open for selection. 

How Is This So Cheap?
