The Youth and Family Ministry degree is designed to train and equip you for youth ministry. This program introduces a theological understanding and focus on youth culture, youth development, and spiritual ministry. Furthermore, you will undergo an internship and gain the experience necessary to work effectively in your community.
Flexible and Tailored
Our program offers you the ability to customize and tailor your studies according to your experience, interests, and ministry goals. Furthermore, classes are available during the day, evening, weekend, or online for part-time and full-time studies. You are able to adapt your schedule to fit your current needs to maintain workplace, ministry, or familial responsibilities.
Youth Ministry Focus
Our program is focused on producing trained youth pastors and youth leaders. To do so, you can take up to a full year of youth and family ministry-specific courses, such as Foundations of Ministry with Youth, Youth and Family in the Immigrant Church, and Evangelism and Discipleship in the Contemporary Adolescent World. This program will uniquely prepare you with the necessary skills and abilities to work in diverse church settings.
Holistic Family Approach
You will learn how to integrate working with youth and their families. This contemporary approach recognizes the need to holistically provide support to the entire family unit. In addition to core courses in Christian history, theology, and biblical studies, our faculty teaches courses such as Counselling Adolescents and their Families for effective youth ministry in the 21st century.
