Above all, I want to emphasize that the scriptures tell us to visit those who are sick and who are in prison. Visitation is the key part of our Main Event program. We are coming to establish a relationship, not force a decision for the sake of our statistics.Youth Direct Ministries is not a "hit and run" ministry.
We are looking for committed volunteers who not only spent most of their time with one young person during the entire event, but also will correspond with them and even visit each month for as long as that child is in the institution.I know first-hand there is no better way to lead a troubled juvenile to the Lord than by building trust and establishing a relationship. Many of these young people are wary of authority figures, so we must spend as much time listening as we talk with them.
Once we receive your completed registration form, we will be contacting you regarding the dates of the required training. This training certifies you for participation in any future Youth Direct Ministries Main Events in Texas or anywhere in the country. The training will be offered several times in the Dallas area in the four weeks preceding the scheduled event. You only have to attend two ninety-minute sessions, which we believe you will find very informative and will adequately prepare you for sharing with youth. Most ministries do not specialize their training for youth. We do.
