Purpose and Objectives
The Youth Ministry, Family, and Culture major provides students with the knowledge and skills to reach the next generation by preparing them to evangelize and disciple youth and their families. This degree prepares students to serve as youth pastors or youth workers in a variety of specialized settings.
In addition to the mission statement, general objectives, and requirements of the bachelor’s degree, the objectives of the Youth Ministry program are to enable students to:
- Articulate a biblical philosophy of ministry.
- Create a comprehensive one-year ministry program calendar.
- Articulate how Jesus counseled people in Scripture and identify core strategies of how Jesus connected with individuals.
Because they complete twelve hours of Bible and Theology as part of the Youth Ministry, Family, and Culture major, students also earn a Bible major.
