Leadership Lab

Leadership Lab is an amazing opportunity for high school youth who enjoy church and faith. It is a week-long experience with youth from all around the Midwest that is designed to assist youth acquire skills that will be useful in congregational, synodical and national youth ministry settings. There are levels and each level is structured to help participants progress in their ability to be responsible youth ministry leaders and helps them grow in their awareness of God, self, and others.

Some perks for being a member of New Life:

  • 4 First-timers to Leadership Lab go Free. Funds come out of the church budget; New Life is committed to doing what it can to raise up youth leaders not only for our church but for the world.

  • As youth progress through the levels, the New Life Youth Fund supports them each year, offsetting the registration costs by at least $150.
