|Description:||This major is designed to prepare the student to disciple and nurture young people in the 21st century. This newly revised program equips students to provide leadership in youth ministry initially, but also to be able to grow into other leadership roles over time. There is much more to leading youth ministry than just knowing your Bible and being able to preach/teach young people – although those are important aspects. Effective youth ministry involves leading a team of people to impact young people in a variety of different ways and events. This program equips students with a solid knowledge of the Bible and how to properly understand it as well as develop their understanding and skills in leadership and their spiritual character. In addition, students have the opportunity to gain experience through a one-year practicum and to be mentored by current youth leaders who understand how to develop other leaders and teach them how to live life as a youth pastor.
Field Education units are an integral part of this program. The student observes and experiences various ministries in the first year and then gets involved in increasing levels of leadership during their second and third years all while being mentored. This real-world experience prepares them for the final year where they serve in ministry at least half-time for the full year and get a complete experience in pastoral leadership – again with a mentor to guide them through the journey.
