Looking for a great leadership opportunity for youth?

Peer Ministry Training (PMT) is an opportunity to come together with high school youth and youth counselors who want to learn additional/intentional skills in leadership/caring for peers/discipleship to serve in their congregation, school, community and family. The Missouri District Family Life and Youth Board invite you and/or your youth to Peer Ministry Training

February 16-18, 2018, at the Sojourn Retreat Center in Dittmer, Missouri.

Full details of the weekend can be found at the Missouri District—LCMS website.

Peer Ministry Training 1 is the entry level course and is designed to teach participants:

  • Quality training in caring skills
  • Commitment to growth in faith and values
  • Christian service to other people
  • Listening with care
  • Help bring the hope of Christ into the lives of their peers

Peer Ministry Training 2 is the follow-up course to Peer Ministry Training. Participants must have been through PMT 1.

The focus of PMT 2 is:

  • Learning how to validate others
  • How to deal with sensitive issues
  • Discovering our spiritual gifts
  • Learning to share our faith and personal faith stories

Your Cost for the entire weekend is $80 per person, which includes staff, materials, housing and meals. The actual cost for the training is more than $200 per person. However, the Missouri District Board for Family Life and Youth Ministry is providing funds to pay the balance per person for youth and counselors. (Immanuel-Joplin students can get their costs further reduced by participating in the Super Subs fund raiser on Feb 3 and 4.)

Deadline: The deadline for Immanuel-Joplin high school students is Sunday, February 4. Fill out the form below, and bring your check to Jason Glaskey on or before that date to be registered.
