Welcome to the ERLTC website.  If you are looking for Christian youth group activities, spiritual church youth programs and a place for your church’s youth group to learn more about Jesus and develop their God given talent, then I would invite you to look into the Eastern Region Leadership Training for Christ a bit more.
The program is called ERLTC (Eastern Region Leadership Training for Christ). See, this is a nationwide program that churches just like yours have been a part of for almost 20 years!  So you see my friend, it’s not some whiz bang new hot shot item off the shelf.  It’s a tried and true program for our kids that they love to participate in.

The Mission Of ERLTC

The mission of ERLTC is to help our children achieve skills in leadership, Bible knowledge and Christian servant hood.  ERLTC is built on the concept that each child and each teen has different talents and abilities.  We want to maximize the use of those talents and abilities. The program is open for kids in grades 3-12.  And since there is no competition, the kids do not get discouraged.
This program is open to all churches along the East Coast.  Currently, we have churches from Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina participating.  And we are growing every year.
We do go to a convention where the children perform and show their talents.  The convention is in Charlotte, NC at The Westin Charlotte Hotel.
The convention is not a competition at all.  All participants are evaluated on their “own” personal performance.  They do not compete against other churches or other participants.

ERLTC is a Year-round Program

Friend, please don’t think that ERLTC is just about convention.  This is a year round church youth group program.  The program is really geared to help churches strengthen their church youth group and help stimulate and encourage spiritual growth in your church youth group.

“LTC is like being in a school club with other Christians.” Kasey Mitchell, 9th grade

“LTC gives you a Bible education with hands-on activities and fun.” Paul Keeler, 7th grade.

“I like LTC because we get to go to Charlotte, do ice breakers, watch puppet shows and learn more about God while having fun.” Sydney Beasley, 5th grade

“At LTC, you get to do things that you usually don’t get to do.” Justin Vail, 3rd grade

I urge you to take this opportunity to be a part of something great.  Do what other churches just like yours have already done and get involved in a youth program that is guaranteed to deliver fun activities for your kids while teaching them vital Christian beliefs and behaviors.
