Multiply Youth Leaders Initiative

MYLI is a 2-year training and coaching program offered by Ft. Lauderdale Youth for Christ and Impact 922 Ministries. 

Participants will create step-by- step, practical strategies for an effective youth ministry program.

The program is directed by Dr. Tommy Carrington, who has over 30 years of youth ministry experience. He served as a Youth Evangelist and Urban Director with Miami Youth for Christ for 12 years, and in 2002, he founded Impact 922 Ministries, a ministry designed to train and equip youth workers and student leaders. Tommy earned B. A. and M. A. degrees in Counseling Psychology from Trinity International University, and a Doctor of Ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, specializing in Ministry in Complex Urban Settings.


MYLI is dedicated to provide training, resources and support for youth leaders to equip them with a strategy for reaching teenagers with the gospel and discipling them into the church. Our goal is that young people that will be empowered as transformational leaders in the church and prepared for service in the church and in the world. 

The next cohort of the MYLI program is scheduled to begin in October, 2020, and will run through July, 2021.

Many churches in South Florida do not have organized youth ministries, and many of those that do, are often led by volunteers or part-time leaders who have little to no formal training in ministry. Many of them do not have access to training or resources, and do not have a solid foundation for instituting a youth ministry program, a template for best practices, or a resource bank for practical tools and ideas for effective youth ministry. The MYLI program exists to provide these for churches who need them.

The Free 6-week MYLI training on Relational Youth Ministry: “Essential Ingredients for an Effective Youth Ministry.” Classes will be held on Saturdays, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. The first class was on October 31, but we have lots of good information each Saturday. The next session is on November 7th -- we will not meet on Thanksgiving Weekend.
