This is the first time I’m trying this, but I wanted to see if we could raise some money online for a project we’re working on to informally train youth workers in Mexico City. We are trying to raise $500 through Chipin to help with promotion and preparation for an Institute for Youth Ministry in Mexico City.

The Institute for Youth Ministry is a year long training program which will consist of 10 courses in youth ministry. We will meet 4 times a month for 3 hours a week. Each Saturday, the students will receive youth ministry training that will help them in their local churches.

The courses will cover: Biblical Philosophy of Youth Ministry; Youth Culture; Programming for Youth Ministry; Discipleship in Youth Ministry; Effective Teaching; Family Ministry; Troubled Youth; Communicating in Youth Ministry; Missions with young people; Campus Ministry.

The institute will also offer courses online and through distance, making it more available for other students in other areas of Latin America.

If you’d like to help, please chip in and link to this post on your blog, website, myspace page, etc.
