EQSaints is committed to excellence in everything they do. They believe that ministry leaders deserve the best in training and resources and want to partner with ministry leaders to help grow young disciples. I know they will bring the most current technology to these efforts and involve a dynamic team of people with a common vision and a commitment to training and resources. Tom East Director, Center for Ministry Development
I’ve been blessed to work with EQSaints to provide Bible studies to teens during the pandemic. I have also sat at the NCYC planning table with them. On both occasions, I have witnessed the desire to serve God through the mission, skills, and vision of EQSaints. I see in them the determination to forge ahead into a future filled with unknown challenges, ready to provide ministry leaders with every tool and resource necessary to bring Christ to every person. Tammy Becht Director, Office of Youth and Young Adult Formation and One Bread, One Cup at Saint Meinrad Seminary & School of Theology
I am excited for another voice to be heard and a message to be shared about youth ministry. The team at EQSaints really understands young people and wants to aid them in their quest for a more enriched faith life.

Knowing the passion, dedication, and practical youth ministry experience of the EQSaints Team, I am thrilled for their commitment to seeing that Youth Ministry Access and the Certificate program will continue to challenge and form youth ministers throughout the Church. I am excited to continue my own parish’s subscription to Youth Ministry Access and cannot wait to see how EQSaints expands, in both breadth and depth, the resources available.
