ABOUT
LEAD222 is a non-for-profit international coaching and mentoring ministry. LEAD222 is founded on the biblical mandate of 2 Timothy 2:2, which is to disciple reliable leaders who will teach others. We are dedicated to building a community of student ministry leaders that sharpen one another in personal character (inside game) and professional skills (outside game) to reach a generation to become followers of Christ. Utilizing a variety of resources, programs and training events we offer experienced leadership and best practices to serve youth leaders and spouses, parents, students, staff, and volunteers.

We invite youth leaders to become members of our coaching community as "Coaches In Training" (CT). For only a $25 registration fee youth leaders receive 9 months of coaching. We can offer this training because of the the generous donations from around the country of individuals who have a heart and passion to see healthy leaders leading healthy ministries.


        Everyone who joins LEAD222 becomes a part of an international coaching team that goes beyond the other supportive and supervisory relationships that already exist in the person’s life. Each member serves others in the community by using his or her spiritual gifts and abilities in a personal area of interest to help further the vision of changing the culture of student ministry and reach a generation for Christ.

VISION & MISSION

VISION

Our vision is to change youth ministry culture where it is normal for youth workers to be in an intentional mentoring relationship with students and to be in a mentoring/coaching relationship themselves (The Be-With Constellation) by living out the call of mentoring found in 2 Timothy 2:2

MISSION

To build a Coaching community of healthy student ministry leaders who sharpen each other in personal character and professional skills.

Proverbs 27:17

LEAD222 STRATEGY

INVITE

We invite all youth leaders who are in line with our vision and doctrinal beliefs to become a part of our LEAD222 Coaching Community as “Coaches in Training” for only a $25 administrative fee. Our strongest invitation comes from relationships with our existing coaches, inviting other youth ministry leaders to join our LEAD222 coaching community and regional gatherings. Current CTs and Coaches cast the vision and tell our story through word of mouth. This helps to maintain a high level of connectedness and keep the leadership coaching personal.

OWN

Every youth leader who joins LEAD222 becomes a part of an international coaching community that goes beyond the other supportive and supervisory relationships that already exist in the person’s life. All of our coaches serve each other in the community by using his or her spiritual gifts and abilities in a personal area of interest to help further the vision of changing the culture of student ministry.


JOIN

Youth ministers who are in line with our vision and doctrinal beliefs are encouraged to become a part of our LEAD222 Coaching Community as “Coaches in Training” (CTs).  They receive 9 Months of mentoring in personal character and professional skills and become trained to be a coach to future CTs.

CONNECT

We connect all our “Coaches in Training” with a LEAD222 coach and our coaching community. Our coaching and community is designed to sharpen one another in personal character (“Inside Game”) and professional skills (“Outside Game”). Through these personal coaching relationships, LEAD222 is committed and intentional in developing youth leaders who live healthy lives and oversee healthy and effective student ministries.

LEAD

The goal for every youth leader of LEAD222 is to begin as a “Coach in Training” and then become a Coach who mentors other youth leaders. This process has an enormous potential to bring about a powerful spiritual transformation in church and ministry leaders of today, as well as impact the youth they serve and—we dare to believe this—the future world in which we will all live. We see the echoes of this work reverberating even further, to better the church to which our children’s children will belong, bearing fruit in lives we won’t live long enough to see.

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT


Statement of Faith The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, Godʼs infallible written Word, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. We explicitly affirm our belief in basic Bible teachings, as follows:
