Since you are such a significant part of this ministry through
your prayer, financial and/or moral support
you might be interested in seeing our goals for this year.
This is an abbreviated version of what we are required to submit
to our headquarters each year:
learning more about Latin American youth and church cultures:
Attend at least one youth conference, and take advantage of
chances for interaction with other folks working in the field
to from this point on as Y.M.) in Mexico and Latin
ii. Be involved in ministry
at our local church, San Pablo, specifically in leadership development.
Continue to disciple and train the spiritually mature older
of our 9 local church youth leaders at a training retreat
B) Networking: Continue
networking with the goal of:
Continuing to develop relations with other organizations working
in the area of *Y.M.
in Mex. and Latin America with a view to some sort of consortium.
ii. Finding and studying
culturally effective models of Y.M.
iii. Learning from others
and partnering with them in the area of *Y.M.
iv. Spreading the word about
our involvement in Y.M. through word of mouth, the web site,
promotional materials and business cards.
v. Adding to our *Y.M.
workers database (for conferences or resource mailings)
a course on "Tips for Your Youth Minstry"
Continue to provide training for Mexican churches in the area
of Y.M. though:
a - organize and/or participate
in youth leaders' seminars in different parts of the country
As often as possible this should be done in cooperation with
others who have a similar vision.
- Develop at least 5 more interactive, online *Y.M.
training courses by the end of 2002 including : Discovering
the Spiritual Conditions of your Youth; Utilizing Gods
Teaching Methods; Relationships - the Heart of Discipleship;
The Sovereignty of God in the Life of the Youth Leader; How
to Develop Holistic Active Bible Studies.
b - Develop at least 4
tutorials. Three of those should be: Principals of Leadership;
How to Create Group Unity through Games; Tips for Guiding
- Provide useful articles on youth ministry topics on a monthly
basis via the web site
our animator and Daniel, our programmer
D) Resource Development:
Continue to produce and distribute quality Y.M.
Providing printed materials at conferences (both our resources
and those of others whose work is relevant and of high quality.)
The www.ParaLideres.org web site
of our materials being sold at a Y.M. seminar
E) Website: Continue to
develop and maintain the www.ParaLideres.org web site as a significant
if not primary means of publication and dissemination of youth
ministry resources and training materials:
Develop or help others develop new content on a monthly basis
(bible studies, devotionals, illustrations, games, articles,
stories, dramas, etc)
Always be on the lookout for (low-cost, no-cost) ways to promote
or advertise our site
Facilitate the registration of 10,001 youth leader/pastors into
the sites membership
I spend the about 65% of my time
Incorporate at least 101 additional writers/contributors into
the ParaLideres.org team
Encourage other *Y.M.
org.s to collaborate with us in populating the site with Y.M.
Create an online *Y.M.
directory where youth workers can find and get in contact with
others in their area of interest or region of the world.
Continue to foster sharing of ideas and resources among the
site's visitors and use the site as a clearing house for such
a sharing and collaboration
Help develop skills and abilities of members of the web site
