So proud of Dr. David Odom and the work of the Youth Ministry Institute of New Orleans Seminary. The interchange between teenagers and their family, the student ministry and the congregation is vital to the health of our churches and the development of the students as followers of Jesus. This new ‘do it yourself’ assessment and advisement tool is available for churches to use to assess the health of their youth ministry. Take the assessment today and it will give you a report instantly.
