We Want You!

Are you ready to take your speaking to the next level?

Do you desire to grow in confidence, sharpen your skills, and make a time investment that will pay dividends in your ability to create memorable messages and connect with students when you communicate?


The Youth Communicator’s Cohort is searching for a select group of youth pastors and youth speakers to join us for the Fall ’13 cohort.

Registration is Now Open for the Youth Communicator’s Cohort (Fall ’13)!

If you want to improve your communication and speaking skills with students, join us for the cohort beginning in September 2013. Registration is now open and it’s FREE (but due to the individual nature of the calls and feedback, space is very limited).

You can register BY CLICKING HERE.

YCC members commit to participating in a monthly conference call for encouragement, training, and feedback. Each participant will submit a video of a recent message for the rest of the cohort to view and feedback on. Also, cohort members take turns facilitating discussion each month on a communication-centered topic. Topics include:Biblical exegesis
Blocking, movement, and gestures
Message outline and structure
Refining your message
Best practices of preparation
Improved illustrations
Vocal & speech techniques of the pros
Openings & Closings
And more…Finally, YCC participants get the benefit of being a part of occasional “Master Class” calls facilitated by seasoned youth communicators, preachers, and teachers.

Participant skill levels range from newbie-speaker to seasoned-professionals and everyone in between. The only requirement is that you are currently communicating/preaching/speaking/teaching to students on a somewhat consistent basis.A few reviews from those who have participated in the YCC:
“It’s one of my favorite events of the month. I look forward to the helpful feedback and encouragement.”
“I love getting into discussion and training with so many different perspectives. I see communication in a whole new way.””It’s like Proverbs 27:17 lived out in the youth speaker universe!”
As youth ministry veteran Josh Griffin of Saddleback Church states, “A team approach to communicating makes everyone on the team a better speaker.”


The Youth Coaching Cohort is lead by Matt Maiberger.  Matt has been involved in full-time student ministry for over 16 years. He is married to his amazing wife, Amy, and they have 3 children (14, 10, and 7 years old).  Matt has served in small, medium, and Mega Church student ministries. He and his family are currently in the process of moving to Fort Collins, CO where he will become the Associate Pastor of Life Church.  Matt is also the founder of Youth Speaker’s Coach – A website committed to the resourcing of youth pastors, youth workers, and youth speakers to help them become better communicators for the post-modern students represented in youth ministries today. Through this endeavor, he facilitates the Youth Communicator’s Cohort and coaches numerous youth speakers.
