Learning on and off campus
The Intercultural Youth Ministries program offers students the opportunity to be immersed in the cultures of other countries by working alongside experienced missionaries in intercultural settings for an entire year. Students will experience mentoring by seasoned ministry professionals, while serving as mentors to youth in need, as they learn with and from nationals.
A key aspect of the program is the opportunity students have to gain extensive hands on experience outside the classroom, while being able to continue taking classes online throughout the year.
With nearly half of the world's population under the age of 25, graduates of the program will find many opportunities open to them worldwide. They will be equipped to fill roles in a variety of mission settings, and in the leadership of local churches, Christian schools, camps, retreats, and other group ministries.
