The goal of Youth Ministry International is to train local church youth workers for the people groups of the world. We have developed a strategy in recent years to train people who can train others, and we have been blessed to see God use that strategy to minister to more and more young people.

Last week I had the chance to go to Puerto Escondido, on the coast of Oaxaca, to participate in a youth leader’s training event for the Baptist Convention there. We also planned a graduation ceremony for the people you see in the photo above.

The Certificate level program that we have at the Mexican Baptist Theological Seminary has expanded to other parts of Mexico, multiplying the ministry. The students in the photo graduated from the extension in Puerto Escondido, which has been taught 100% by Juan Roman, a graduate from the Bachelor’s degree program in Mexico City.

It was a privilege to be a part of the graduation ceremony and see the results of ministry multiplication.
