Who we are
Great Commission Youth Ministry is an evangelical youth ministry training and consulting agency. Our goal is to provide quality local church training to assist churches and denominations reach and disciple the youth in their communities. We use Biblical contextualized, practical, proven strategies that come from over 50 years of local church youth ministry experience and training in both informal and formal academic settings. Founder, Dr. Randy Smith, has applied this strategy successfully in several churches and taught youth ministry academic courses in evangelical Christian institutions in the U.S. and around the world. Upon request we provide personal coaching to assure appropriate application of the strategies in the local church. We partner with several like-minded domestic and international youth ministry training partners in order to provide comprehensive training and resources that are able to meet the needs of any church anywhere in the world. We are highly relational and provide both face to face and online webinar consultation and training.
