"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 

(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Training is important in the life of all Christians.  For youth and for those serving youth, training is vital. That training can be on how to encourage youth in their faith, teaching them how to read the Bible, demonstrating service to others.

PYV seeks to assist the congregations of the PCV as they train those who serve their youth.

Youth Ministry Training

There are a few options for this training. PYV hosts some occasional training events on various topics. Recordings of past events can be found here. Our Youth Ministries Director, Rev Brian Harvey, is happy to come and visit your church to lead some training there. This can be a one night, one day, or full weekend. You can contact Brian at


PYV also encourages the individual training of youth leaders through its support for youthMETRO.

A one year training scheme, youthMETRO seeks to equip and challenge leaders to be, think and serve like Jesus. The traineeship is designed to complement whatever studies or work commitments a youth leader has, with roughly 4 hours per week needed to work through the course content.
