Youth & Family Ministry
Is this major right for me?
The Youth and Family Ministry degree is designed to prepare and equip students to minister to adolescents and families in a church setting. Students will receive a thorough grounding in University Core and general education Bible classes, then gain hands-on experience and practical training in ministering to youth and families.
With this major, you will:
- Gain a solid theological foundation in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments.
- Study the principles of the New Testament and how those are applied to daily life and ministry.
- Learn the history of the church universal and the Restoration Movement, seeking to understand the impact of that heritage on church today.
- Receive both theoretical instruction and practical training in ministry through a variety of classes, especially classes pertaining to youth ministry, and an internship with a youth group.
