Youth & Family

  • Specialize your degree with a Concentration in Youth, Culture, and Mission (YCM). This concentration serves as academic preparation for service in the church in youth and family ministry. It locates youth and family ministry within the larger context of the cultures of youth and the mission of the Christian gospel.
  • Go deeper in your faith by taking 12 Exploring Faith: Entry Level Courses and earn an Advanced Certificate in Youth and Family Ministry.
  • Grow your ministry through Vibrant Faith Training School. Each fall, Wartburg hosts adult leaders, volunteers, clergy, parents, youth and seminary students who have a passion for forming vibrant faith among young people will learn in community through a combination of onsite training and online learning. Participants will broaden their knowledge and skill set through an adventure experience, small group conversations, professional development assessments, and solid theological education with cutting-edge ministry basics.
