The goal of We Love Our Youth Worker, US is to create a national standard for how churches staff youth workers. Whether full-time, part-time or volunteer, WLOYW believes our new Covenant, comprised of seven promises, will impact the quality of your church’s ministry.
We believe that if churches and youth workers both commit to this covenant, it will lead to…
healthier youth workers and ministries,
which will mean that youth workers serve at one church for longer,
which then ultimately leads to more teens and their families hearing and living out the Gospel.
The process is built around an accreditation where we ask churches to commit to two actions steps, per promise for a calendar year. Churches who then earn accreditation will be allowed to use our logo on job advertisements which will have two consequences:
1) It wil help churches attract a better quality youth worker and
2) provide a database where youth workers can quickly identify churches committed to healthy ministry.
Churches will also be able to put our logo on their website to communicate their accreditation as a means of attracting families to their church indicating their strong commitment to healthy youth and family ministry.
Thanks for loving your Youth Worker
and ultimately your church’s youth!
