Introduction to Youth Studies

YDEV 136
Youth Development

This introductory course is designed to acquaint students with the need for character and personal integrity in the youth minister as well as the need for biblically founded philosophy of youth ministry. This will include an emphasis on person-centered rather than event-centered ministries. An overview of youth ministry and instruction in the concerns and crises of teenagers will be addressed. Instruction in various ministry techniques will be applied inside and outside the classroom in practical settings.
