Have you been looking for resources that you can use in your youth ministry? Are you looking for new ways of engaging youth?
During this course we will look at two different approaches in engaging youth and helping them to grow in their spiritual journey with Christ: hospitality, worship, mission and develop strong Christian relationships with each other and with God.
This course will also consider how we can restructure the youth group setting and Bible Study time to include those with disabilities: autism, learning disabilities, and mobility. Christ said all children are welcome.
Students are required to have copies of the following books for this course:
- Five Practices of Fruitful Youth Ministry, by Robert Schnase and Terry B. Carty
- Finding God in the graffiti: Empowering Teenagers Through Stories, by Frank Rogers, Jr.
This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.
