Youth ministry and Christian education face significant challenges. We struggle to help youth retain faith through their twenties. At Wheatstone, we think the source of those challenges is simple and deep: youth lack transitions into Christian adulthood. Rather than inviting youth into the riches of Christian maturity, Christians adopt society's stories about how adulthood works.
We're here to help. Wheatstone offers a hopeful, informed, and practical vision for youth ministry. We empower churches and Christian schools to invite their youth into Christian adulthood. We're a young, growing nonprofit that's out to spark church-led, youth-focused renewal through winsome Christian maturity.
The Academy inspires youth and their leaders through summer conferences and alumni events.
Partnerships empowers schools and churches to invite youth into Christian adulthood through local events.
A one-week rite of passage for Christian youth and training for their leaders, hosted at Wheatstone's Partner Universities every summer. There's nothing else like it.
