Christmas 2019: We reached 2350+ leaders weekly

Hi Friends,
The last months have been a crazy, blessed and successful time for the Mr. Jugendarbeit Platform. As of this message the community counts 2350+ people on all social media outlets. The Newsletter on the website gained 850+ subscribers in only 10 weeks! I am super happy with the result. Because we’re much further along on the road map than I anticipated at the beginning. The goal: reach 5000 German-speaking youth workers and inspire them to do relational youth ministry that points to Christ. As of January 2020 Mr. Jugendarbeit will be under the umbrella of the Swiss Mission Fellowship. Their HR & Admin support will give the Platform more credibility and will allow you to make tax-deductible Donations. Thank you, 1000 for “sending” us on the journey!

March 2019: How it all started on YouTube

What is Mr. Jugendarbeit: I want to inspire youth workers to help the community of young people they care for by creating weekly videos where I share tools and stories that help them to become an inspiring community builder.

Market Research: The German-speaking market size is considerably smaller than the English-speaking market, where »Youth Ministry« yields about 6.05 Million search results, while the German »Jugendarbeit« provides only 40.8 thousand on the YouTube search engine. I’m creating a brand that could make it to the top in the youth ministry niche as there is no one else creating video resources.

When the Platform started with a YouTube Channel in March 2019 I made this Video for Patrons

About me: I have been involved in youth ministry for the last 17 years, on staff with Young Life for the last 7 years, currently as an Area Developer for Switzerland and Transylvania, Romania. I’ve started and led youth ministries in Germany, Switzerland and Romania and am currently training more than 50 leaders in church youth ministries. My experience as a web designer, school counselor, studies in theology and marketing have set me up well for this unique opportunity. In my years as a youth worker, I was blessed with good English resources and trainers. Now I want to pass on the valuable training to youth workers in their language, so they can tap into proven training methods that have a lasting impact.

YouTube as the ideal platform: Did you know that YouTube is one of the largest search engines with over 1.5 Billion logged-in users each month? My passion for filmmaking on YouTube started five years ago. I practiced weekly vlogging and feel drawn to use this form of communication to empower next-generation leaders. I put together a team of seasoned youth workers who support me with mentoring, ideas, scripts and their networks.

How can you help? Would you like to partner with me and my team to fund this life-changing project and become an investor in Mr. Jugendarbeit? You would become a patron of German-speaking youth workers, teachers, parents and pastors, helping them inspire young people to change the world.

What would you get? As a financial partner, you’d get reports, stats and hear stories from youth workers whose lives have changed through the community through a personal newsletter. And best of all, you will be a blessing to many young people!
