YFC Academy

Learn how to accurately handle and communicate Biblical truth.

This four day experience is focused on establishing foudations of preparation and communication for Faithful Bible Teaching. We will equip YFC Staff with the understanding and skills needed to regularly and effectively communicate the Gospel. Staff will learn a person-centered process that will allow them to identify their audience, clearly articulate their focus, and choose the most effective communication style for each setting. As well as expressing the clear teaching of God’s word in order to articulate the Gospel.

Academy is offered once a year in January. Academy attendees will get to take advantage of returning to the Inverness Hotel in Denver and reuniting with their Institute class. They will also have access to outstanding faculty, many of whom they met at Institute. This is a rich learning experience as students dig into scripture together and elevate their communication skills.

There are two pre-assignments:

  1. Prepare a 3 minute devotional aimed at a YFC audience using one to three verses from the Bible
  2. Buy and read Secrets of Dynamic Communication by Ken Davis and come up with one practical application of each chapter that can be applied in your ministry site.
