TLT Ministry

TLT Logo Kit

The Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program is designed to challenge and empower the teen Pathfinder with new and increased responsibilities, while allowing them the security of doing so in a place they know and love. 

The TLT experience will assist the Pathfinder teen to form adult-Pathfinder relationships as an expression of their developing identity as teenagers. The TLT member must learn how to give of themselves and how to receive from others. They must allow themselves to be known while getting to know others.

There are a variety of published (PDF) resources to assist you in growing this exciting ministry for the high school students who need more challenges than the Pathfinder program can otherwise offer them.

TLT Staff Training Online Courses

 

A series of five TLT Staff Training Online Courses have been developed based on the Teen Leadership Training Director’s Guide.  

These courses are self-paced and can be taken as Adventist Youth Ministry Training (AYMT) courses which includes the development of a portfolio binder and a Portfolio Review when completed.  Also, they can be taken as informative courses without a Portfolio Review.  

The courses include: TLT Mentor Operations, Club Director / TLT Associate Director Operations, Area/District Coordinator Operations, Conference Director / TLT Coordinator Operations, and TLT Instructor Operations. 

It is recommended that the TLT Mentor Operations course should be the first course that everyone takes.  Then other courses should be taken according to your area of ministry.

TLT Workshops

Holding a TLT Training Workshop is an essential part of many conference TLT programs.  These are 13 of the 24 TLT Workshops outlined in TLTs.  It is our dream that TLT Instructors would create their own Activity-based workshop exercises and write their own up following this format so we could have collections of options for instructors to draw from.  If you have created activity based workshops for TLT workshops that are missing,please contact us.
