Youth and Young Adult Ministry Concentration

This concentration is designed to meet the growing need of congregations for leaders who are well prepared and equipped for ministry with and among youth and young adults. The Concentration provides a theological grounding for engaging in Youth and Young Adult ministry and offers strategies for mission and service learning that are adaptable to various contexts and social cultures.
The Youth and Young Adult Ministry Concentration takes advantage of the seminary’s learning partnerships with our
Youth Ministry Certification School and Theological Education with Youth (TEY) program, as well as with area congregations, campus ministries, and outdoor ministries which provide settings for contextual learning. Students choosing this Concentration may have opportunities for Teaching Parish and Internship sites in which they can experience excellent Youth and Young Adult Ministries on the congregational level.
