Program Information

School: Kingswood University
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Youth Ministry
Description: Children are our most precious resource and ministering to children is one of our greatest privileges. Jesus demonstrated His love for children as he personally ministered to them (Mark 10:13-16) and as he used them as examples of what our faith should be like (Matthew 18:1-6), rebuking those who would lead them astray. The Church is in need of those who are thoroughly equipped and who have a passion to minister to children.

The Children’s Ministry Major program of study is a Christian education program that specifically focuses on the needs of children from birth to adolescence. In this program, students will learn the theory of child psychology and development. They will be exposed to a variety of age-specific programming, as well as develop the skills to create and implement programming designed specifically for the unique needs of a local setting. An integral part of the curriculum for the Children’s Ministry Major program of study is a focus on ministry to children in the context of the family.
