Youth Leader oasis


WHO we are

After 26 years in youth ministry, we created the Youth Ministry oasis because we desire to see healthy youth ministries in every city transforming their communities for Christ. We want youth pastors and spouses to experience a trusted relationship with us so they can increase their health, navigate crises, and ward off disasters.

what we do

We guide youth ministry leaders into healthy youth ministry by offering free and confidential soul care and coaching to youth pastors and spouses.

how we do it

- One-on-one meetings in person, phone calls and zoom.
- Host one-on-one retreats with youth pastors and spouses.
- Attend local youth pastor network meetings.
- Consult with churches and leadership.
- Speak at youth ministry training events.
- Host the Youth Leader Summit (NJ & FL).


we know that ministry can be lonely and difficult at times. So whether you need some coaching or just someone to talk to, please know we are here for you!
