The youth ministry major emphasizes biblical principles, discipleship, counseling relationships, and effective communication, and combines classroom instruction and ministry experience. The major enables students to articulate a biblical philosophy of youth ministry, model an appropriate lifestyle, understand contemporary youth problems, counsel youth, organize and administrate youth programs, and communicate biblical concepts effectively in a variety of teaching situations.
