These programs are designed for those who are actively engaged in the practice of youth ministry or children’s ministry and feel called to deepen their own understanding of the practice of that ministry. The program will equip participants with a foundational learning, rooted in the practical application to their specific ministry context. This program is designed to provide an overview of core biblical, theological, Episcopal, and practical knowledge that will be applied directly to the practice of ministry in the students context.
The two programs will run concurrently sharing some online classes and discussion sessions while also splitting up for classes and readings that are specific to Youth Ministry or Children’s Ministry.
Each participant will complete a Ministry Statement and a Ministry Plan for their specific setting, as a way of integrating their learning and the practice of ministry. The formation of a community of learners, who will practice and model Formation ministry not just for the duration of the program, but beyond it into and throughout their professional lives, is central to the program.
