HOUSEHOLD LEADERS’ TRAINING
Youth for Christ invests greatly in sustaining, pastoring, and enriching the lives of the young through the household. Households create a supplementary environment where members are able to establish a genuine, Christ-centred friendship with their brothers and sisters, as well as a renewed and strengthened relationship with God.
Thus, the Household Leaders Training (HLT) is conducted as a response to our ministry’s direction of holistic empowering of all YFC members, starting from the grassroots all the way up to the core leaders, through the household.
Through the HLT, we hope to equip and empower our household
heads, whose responsibility is to make sure that their members are able to have their regular household.
Included in this manual are carefully laid down instructions and guidelines in conducting the training, as well as the necessary details about the sessions. Also, as we conduct the HLT, let us note two significant points: 1.
Appropriate usage of terms. To cite, household essentially refers to both the group of people and the activity conducted by that group; a household head is the person leading the household; and Household Leaders Training is used to refer (in isolation) to the title of the training.
Emphasis on the two parts of the training. The first part addresses the pastoral aspect of being a household head, while the second part (which is conducted after the youth camp), discusses the technical aspect.
While most of us have been conducting the HLT for some time now, we pray that this time we truly take it to a deeper level and do it with the best we can give, so that ultimately it may serve its purpose of equipping our YFCs with the right heart, mind and spirit as they embrace the call to become household heads.

THE HOUSEHOLD LEADERS’ TRAINING
he CFC Youth for Christ (YFC) ministry highly values the importance of family in the lives of the young. It is in the family that a person realizes the significance of learning about relationships, experiencing love, and growing as an individual. It is in this spirit that YFC and the CFC community sought to create a small group unit to help guide the lives of an individual into building a strong relationship with Christ. This is done through the households. The household is a venue for an individual to build friendships through trust, experience happiness through love, gather support, and learn more about themselves and Christ, in a group of four (4) to seven (7) members.
This implies great value on the role of the household heads, as persons leading them to Christ. Being closely in touch with the lives of our members poses a significant need for proper training and right knowledge of being a household head. Thus, the Household Leader’s Training was created.
