    Tic Long, President

Small Group Growth
Small Groups can live or die by their leader. Train your staff and student leaders the basics in effective small group leadership. Learn to provoke discussion, guide conversation and cultivate growth.

Using 10-Minute Talks: Speaking to a Generation with a Short Attention Span
Wouldn't it be nice if all of us could communicate the Scriptures like Rob Bell or speak with the clarity of Andy Stanley? But let's face it: We aren't them. So we should stop trying to be them, right? That coupled with the fact that students' attention spans are growing shorter and the need to communicate to this lost generation is even greater brings up a critical question: How can we communicate truth in a way that teenagers will truly remember? In this seminar you'll learn the power and effectiveness of the 10-Minute Talk, a method of storytelling that's laser focused and impactful.

His enthusiasm is matched with his information and presentation. Our folks loved and appreciated their time with him. His web site rocks and is a constant source of resources. He will be back!"
Dudley Chancey, PhD, Professor of Youth Ministry
Oklahoma Christian University

"We brought Jonathan out to lead a workshop for youth leaders from churches across our Conference. His presentation on reaching unchurched youth was very meaningful and inspiring for those youth leaders present, representing small youth groups of 8 to large church youth groups of 100+. His training session provided our youth leaders with enthusiasm to make a difference. We hope to be able to use him again in the future."
Sue Ellen Nicholson, Director of Children and Youth Ministries
North Carolina Conference United Methodist Church

"At Youth for Christ's DCLA 2003, we brought Jonathan McKee to lead an afternoon seminar for students on how understand and reach their unchurched friends. Jonathan's room was packed each day to more than capacity and students loved him. He was funny, kept their attention, and equipped them to make a difference. Jonathan got great reviews from participants and added to the overall experience students had at DCLA. I would encourage you to consider how your ministry might benefit by using Jonathan McKee."
Mike Work, Executive Director
DCLA Evangelism Superconference

"Jonathan knows unchurched kids. He not only knows how to reach them, he does it. I've brought Jonathan out multiple times to speak and students loved him. His message was dynamic and he knew how to hit the "fringe" kids just where they were at."
Phil Vaughn, Professor of Youth Ministry
Simpson College

"Jonathan was the keynote speaker at our Youthfest event this year with Sonicflood. The comment I keep hearing from our administrators is "Get that guy back here to do a week of chapel for us!" I also heard several students say, "I usually don't listen to the guy up there- but Jonathan was speaking right to me!" I have never seen high school students respond with that before. Jonathan was a highlight of our youth conference."
Terri Dingfield
Director of Admissions
Grace University, Omaha, NE

"I was at an event where I got to hear Jonathan train a group of youth workers. If you want your adults to be touched by God, and to build stairs closer to him - you need Jonathan -because he will do a great job and he'll never let you down."
Reggie Dabbs
National Youth Speaker

"Jonathan blew the doors off the hinges. I can't think of a better way to get your un-churched teenagers jacked and excited about Christ. Jonathon was unbelievably inspiring to all who heard him speak. Interspersed between laughs, he provoked all of us to think hard about our walk with God. Many young lives were changed that day."
Travis Hearn, Chaplain - Kansas City Royals
Sports & Youth Pastor - Radiant Church, Surprise, AZ

"Jonathan trained our staff and student leaders how to reach beyond the church walls and make a difference in the lives of the 'unchurched.' We were not only challenged to reach out, we were equipped to do so."
Travis Osborne, High School Pastor
The Grove Community Church, Riverside, California
