Empower

Empower is leadership training designed to help improve your effectiveness in reaching the children, youth, and young adults who are the focus of your chosen area of ministry.

What Is Empower Training?

The training aims to improve organizational skills, share ideas, foster imagination, and creativity, prompt ingenuity in teaching, and encourage social connections with others who are also leading out in their local church. We use the AYMT framework for our seminars and Master Guide curriculum.

What is AYMT?

Adventist Youth Ministries Training (AYMT) is a curriculum of learning designed to provide role-specific training for club staff members. While its primary targets are those who have been invested as Master Guides, it also provides structured training for staff who have not yet earned their Master Guide class and some direct connection to the Master Guide Curriculum.

The AYMT framework provides for standardized departments, seminar nomenclature, and descriptions. These seminars and related fieldwork are then organized into certification programs as approved by the appropriate North American Division Youth Ministry (NAD) committee with General Conference participation. The system is designed to allow flexibility in many areas and provides opportunities for unions and conferences to develop additional certifications and seminars that meet their specific needs.
