Youth Evangelism Catalyst Weekend Retreat

"Mentoring the Next Generation of Kingdom Entrepreneurs"


The Youth Evangelism Catalyst weekend will inspire, motivate and energize the youth to partner with their church family in spreading the gospel message and the love of Jesus.

The YEC is designed to encourage churches to empower the next generation to birth and lead out with innovative ideas of evangelism to reach their peers and their communities for Christ.

Following the Catalyst events, YEC panels will go regionally around the state to meet with next generation teams, mentors, and families that have designed creative outreach ideas.

The Kingdom Entrepreneurs will be awarded a matching dollar amount to the funding provided by their churches, and have the opportunity to receive additional help and coaching by one of the panel members.

YEC 16 minute informational and training video. Watch it NOW.
