Youth Ministry

You might be looking at this major because you have a passion for ministering to the next generation.

This degree offers both excellent Bible teaching and hands-on training in youth ministry, leading to a bachelor’s degree. The B.A./B.S. in Youth Ministry prepares students to minister to youth through academic instruction and hands-on ministry experiences.

We are excited to let you know that Grace College partners with The National Institute for the Development of Ministries to Youth and is affiliated with CE National, a national organization of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches.
