Communicate God's Word. Powerfully. Clearly.
Raising up a generation of powerful, clear communicators . . .
For the past several years there's been a grassroots movement taking place in Memphis, TN & Orlando, FL. These cities have hosted a gathering of next generation ministry leaders seeking to sharpen their skills as clear Bible communicators. These short, intimate gatherings have been meaningful times of collectively pouring over God’s Word, highlighting essential truth, and learning to communicate that truth in a clear, powerful way. We realized there was something special happening and knew we needed to share it with more leaders in more cities.
WELCOME TO CLEAR. A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ED NEWTON (& FRIENDS) AND YM360.Attend a CLEAR Conference and you'll spend quality time with other ministers while you learn “best practices” from some of youth ministry's best communicators.
CLEAR offers a range of benefits, including:
• In-depth teaching on how to craft a biblically-centered delivery
• Ministry coaching
• Fellowship and community with like-minded leaders
• How to lead clear invitations
• Personal access to some of youth ministry's best communicators
A NOTE FROM ED:
"Many people can talk, but few can communicate! CLEAR is simply a strategic effort to not just influence your communication style, but to help shape it. Communication at it’s simplest definition is the ability to create connection from the sender to the receiver with a message of clarity leading unto a response. Therefore, when this simple technique is saturated in the eternal promise of God’s Word never returning void, the ramifications are significant. Therefore, it is my heart in these days that we share to help you find 'your unique voice' in communicating clearly for life-change. In short, come learn how to stay true to who you are in the calling you have been given and be effective in communicating the whole counsel of God.” - Ed Newton

We exist to support and encourage next generation ministry leaders (a fancy name for youth pastors) as you lead teenagers to know Christ and make Him known. Our primary expressions for doing that are in Camps, Conferences, Missions, Bible Studies (long and short-term), Ministry Resources, Training, and more.Take a look around our site to learn more ... and please let our extraordinary team know if there's anything we can do for you.
We're extremely excited to be partnering with our good friend Ed Newton to offer CLEAR. We hope to see you at a CLEAR Conference soon ... hurry, spots are (very) limited :)
