YOUTH MINISTRY CERTIFICATION

Youth Ministry Certification courses are at the heart of our model for practical, theological education. These courses provide transformative, theological training to youth ministry practitioners. They are designed to provide graduate academic training to help persons qualify for Certification in the Youth Ministry through the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the UMC. We will be offering three courses towards Youth Ministry Certification this January: UM Studies, Adolescent World, and Teaching Theology with Youth.

After approval of your application for Certification courses, you will be sent a link for course registration. Both new and returning students must complete the application. Students for January 2019 must complete the Application by November 12, 2018. Applications for 2019 are now closed.
