We have had such positive feedback from our new BYM/Carey, Foundations in Youth Ministry course that we want to continue to grow it and use it to train great youth workers. It’s theologically based with highly practical from experienced youth pastors. It’s done over two short block courses in one semester to make it accessible for ALL youth workers. The first semester course will be run in Auckland and the second semester course is all set for Christchurch.
It can also be part of your one or two year internship if you are studying at a distance so give us a call and we’d love to talk to you more about it. Call Sam Kilpatrick on 021 488 955 or Heather Ameye-Bevers on 021 615 717.
Another new paper that is so needed in youth ministry right now is The Gospel and Youth. The course will place a high emphasis on thinking through both the challenges for youth of living out the gospel in the 21st century, as well as developing evangelistic strategies within youth ministry, at both individual and group level.
