Youth Ministry Minor (M)
The Youth Ministry minor equips students to minister to the faith needs of young people. Students receive training to administer youth ministry programs in a variety of settings, or to serve in any number of support capacities for youth ministry within a congregation. The Youth Ministry minor is not restricted to students enrolled in professional church work programs. Students who are majoring in other fields of study and desire to be of service to youth through their congregational youth programs are encouraged to enroll.
