You'll learn...

  • How our concerns for youth safety can become censoring, condescending, and hypocritical...

and how to avoid both foolishness and condescension

  • For good and for bad, the inevitability of participating in culture...

and the importance of youth leaders who explore culture alongside their children

  • The importance of living free from fear...

and how to trust God with your youth's explorations

  • How to hope higher for youth than fear would permit...

and how to provide for youth to spiritually and personally thrive on the good, the true, and the beautiful; not merely survive on the OK, the correct, and the inoffensive

  • That all good things come from God...

and to move from the good in culture to worship of the God who transcends culture

  • How to explore contemporary youth tastes and preferences to build relationships based on trust...

and become a trusted guide to the deeper cultural sources of the things they enjoy

  • How to recognize irrelevance...

and avoid offering youth embarrassing or counterproductive things as they find healthy building blocks for faithful adult identities

  • How to find excellence that looks beyond marketing budgets...

and follows the source of good things and examines the history of excellence which has stood the test of time

  • How to invite youth "further up and further in" to the best things of Christian life and faith...

and show your work so they can explore and reflect on their own after you have done all you can do

  • How to make the transition from being your youth's trusted guide to their lasting friend...

and live in the mature peer relationship between you and youth who have claimed Christian adulthood

About Wheatstone

Wheatstone Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Fullerton, California that invites youth into Christian adulthood. We believe that youth ministry is the American church’s front line, and that, as a result, youth leaders have some of the church’s most vital jobs—they aren’t the second-class church workers that many have taken them to be. So, we provide youth pastors and leaders with live trainings, lectures, and resources that treat them with respect and equip them to meet today’s challenges. In a word - we train you to invite your youth into Christian adulthood.
