Being a church leader is hard– and even harder when you’re young. In a time when it’s confusing to know what voices to listen to, I’m glad this resource is here to provide valuable, practical, and Jesus-centered advice for young church leaders to becoming the right person for their family, ministry, and personal life.

The thing that I love most about Young Church Leaders that makes it unique in the crowded world of leadership is the value they place on character above all else. They won’t just make you a better leader; they will make you a better follower of Jesus, a better husband or wife, and a better person in general.

The resources featured on are crafted and created by leaders with deep wells of knowledge, experience, and wisdom, and they are a gift to anyone who is- or works with- a young church leader.
