MA in Youth & Family Studies
Reaching today’s adolescents for Christ and nurturing their spiritual development involves both invigorating and overwhelming challenges. Add the complexities of diverse and fragmented families to the mix and you will need the very best possible resources and skills to reach this generation with the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ. The master of arts in youth and family studies is a combination of solid biblical and theological classes with course curriculum geared to help you define your vision and philosophy of ministry, while expanding your resources to prepare you for this ever-changing ministry field.
