We save youth ministry leaders time & money by creating resources and curriculum to help you point students to Jesus.

I’m Nick, the founder of Ministry to Youth. I have worked with kids and youth as a church leader for more than 20 years. I live in San Diego with my lovely wife, Jena Diliberto. We have three kids—grown and nearly grown—Ethan, Joey, and Emma.

I am passionate about equipping church leaders to do ministry! It’s what I do full time, and it’s endlessly fun and satisfying.

Saving youth ministry leaders time and money is a personal thing for me. Here’s why:

Back in the early days of ministry, I was young and single. I spent just about all my time doing ministry-related stuff: planning events, building relationships with students, coordinating weekend services, recruiting and training volunteers…you name it. I had a passion for pointing students to Jesus and being a part of what God was doing in their lives.

I also attended seminary full-time.

Eventually, I graduated from seminary, fell in love, married, and had three kids.

Juggling the needs of a young family with ministry was difficult. After struggling for years to balance the two, I decided to take a hiatus from full-time ministry, transitioning to a non-ministry job.

I was nearly burned out, and the experience had taken a toll on my family as well. I hesitated to return to full-time ministry.

God was faithful. He wasn’t done with me yet. I spent a year and a half growing, learning, healing, and developing a healthy work/life balance. That balance has served me ever since.

I was ready to go back into full-time ministry. So, I went for it. And I found the balance I’d been seeking.

Looking back, I see that it wasn’t necessary for me to learn the hard way, to put my family life at risk, to nearly burn out. It shouldn’t be necessary for anyone. In the worst case, that path can lead to complete burnout and permanent departure from ministry. But even in the best case, you’ll never be as effective in ministry as you could be if you’d only have the discipline and foresight to maintain balance. Not to mention all the anxiety and stress.

So, when we launched Ministry to Youth in 2014, I knew in my heart and soul that helping youth ministers save time wasn’t merely a service of convenience. It could make all the difference.

And, of course, helping them to save money would only help.

Our audience has grown tremendously. Our website now reaches over 100,000 people per month. We send out weekly messages to over 120,000 youth/kid’s leaders. Our Facebook page has over 30,000 followers. We’re humbled and excited to help so many youth and children’s ministry leaders save time and money.
