Next Gen Leadership: Helping youths reach their potential

YouthMax Plus – is an exciting new youth leadership program made available exclusively for the John Maxwell Team, featuring John Maxwell Team YouthMAX Plus Ambassador, Nick Vujicic. The program is designed for KIDS (ages 8-11) and TEENS (ages 12 and older). YouthMAX inspires and equips young people to value themselves and others, by developing and maintaining a positive self-image, showing compassion to others, persevering in the midst of adversity, and creating a daily routine of successful attitudes and behavior. The goal of this program is to equip and empower youth to develop their leadership skills by adding value to others.


Jeffrey ran a workshop on motivation and target setting for a group of our students. He worked closely with us to understand the students’ needs before proposing a variety of approaches in the design of the workshop. During the workshop, students were engaged by Jeffrey’s skillful facilitation and narrative telling, and they emerged from the workshop inspired and motivated to execute the concrete plans to achieve the individual and group targets and incentives that they have set for themselves. The students also appreciated how after the workshop, Jeffrey continued to check in on their progress and encourage them to strive towards their targets.

I appreciate the way the sessions focused on building up resilience and to follow their dream.

I learnt not to worry about what others think about you.

I enjoyed all of it and I learnt to be myself and the right path to success.

I was offered Jeff’s name after suddenly losing my husband four years ago. He was immediately able to begin to guide my in a positive direction with consolidating my finances.

He carefully listened to my hopes and plans while at the same time allowed me time to be able to take time to work out what my future might look like and how best to organise my finances. This meant that I didn’t have to make any hasty decisions at a difficult time but rather wait until things began to fall in to place and I could see more clearly God’s call for the next season of my life.

Jeff has provided excellent advice incorporating my plans for mission work and understanding that as a Christian, seeking and receiving God’s guidance, some of my plans might seem unusual. At the same time, he has kept me grounded to make sure that I put good plans in to place.

While I already had a lot of experience with budgeting, Jeff was able to provide extra pointers to assist me. 

His advice has included a variety of investment types as well as budgeting and insurance. 

I have and will continue to recommend Jeff to others for advice.

In 2018 the Grade 7 students at Sunrise Christian School, Marion were fortunate enough to have a group from Marion Vineyard Church come in and run a number of sessions on developing leadership and character.

Many of my students found these sessions to be really insightful, inspiring and helpful for them as they transverse the difficult years of adolescence.

The way the program was delivered with a mix of media and up front speaking allowed for a lot of engagement and interactive participation.

When asked if the students would recommend the program be run again in 2019, 90% said they would look forward to doing it again or would recommend for next year’s Grade 7 class.

As a teacher and parent I found the sessions to be informative and inspiring. I would strongly recommend that the program be funded to run again in schools for 2019.

Glory be to God, our Father and the Creator of the universe! I am so thankful to God for the way He connected me with Brother Jeffrey Tan for last two decades and enabling us to reach and produce men and women to lead God’s people among the different linguistic groups in at least five different nations- India, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Bangladesh. With the teaching material produced by Jeff for producing next generation leaders along with some financial support during last twelve months (May 2020 – April 2021) I had trained at least 452 new leaders who are actively leading their own respective people groups and beyond. Of all the training materials during last twelve month, “Disciple-Shift’ principle is proved to be a more powerful and effective in result. I trust God that together we will produce more competent leaders who will faithfully bring glory to God and multiply His disciples in near future. Amen.

In His Service

“My office recently had the pleasure of being involved with the Youth Max Program and meeting students who completed the course at Darlington Primary School. I know there are many deserving programs run by community groups and I appreciate they can’t all receive funding but reports about the benefits of this program were very impressive.

This program is designed to teach students how to deal with set backs and disappointments and give them the tools to turn these negatives into positives and how best to respond to what life may throw at them.”
