How It Works
Grow into the youth minister God called you to be.
Innovative, practical and theologically-grounded, the Graduate Residency in Youth Ministry will help you grow. Be equipped to innovate new ways to minister with youth. Study and learn so you can engage youth in deep, theological reflection about God. Practice youth ministry so God can use you to invite youth on a journey of faith.
Why Youth Ministry?
Youth ministry is an investment in the lives of young people. It is an avenue for teenagers to experience the love of Jesus Christ, be formed in faith, and serve God. Youth Ministry creates Christian community, safe-spaces, and an environment for spiritual growth and development.
What is a Youth Minister?
CYMT believes that a youth minister is anyone who actively engages and invests in the lives of young people. Our mission is to develop professional Youth Ministers whose vocation is to serve youth in all sorts of ministry contexts: traditional church congregations, non-profits, camps, and community centers.
