Young Leaders Collective

Developing, networking and mentoring young Christian leaders (aged 15-18) who are seeking to make a meaningful difference in their world.

Young Leaders Collective


The Young Leaders Collective (YLC) is a new initiative of CBOQ’s Next Generation Ministries that networks emerging 15 to 18-year-old leaders to grow in their biblical understanding, develop their personal leadership skills and enhance their capacities as Christian influencers in their world.

CBOQ has a history of raising up and developing young leaders. Our desire is to continue our rich history with the launch of a Young Leaders Collective retreat at Camp Kwasind in Muskoka, Ontario, on the weekend of May 15-18, 2020. Through an application process, young Canadian Baptist leaders from across Ontario & Quebec will be selected to be part of this retreat. At this long-weekend gathering young leaders will participate in personal assessment, leadership development , team building exercises and foundational faith development. Participants will also be connected with a local to assist them in their ongoing Christian leadership development over the following year as they look towards life after high school.


The retreat will be postponed to 2021. Dates to be released in the fall.
