M.Div/Youth & Student Ministries
The Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond offers students the opportunity to earn a Master of Divinity degree with a concentration in youth and student ministries. The program is designed for graduate students who wish to expand on already learned foundations, as well as learn about the impact of the scripture on youths interested in faith.
An advanced degree in youth and students ministries will aim to equip graduate students with the advanced academic skills and knowledge needed to serve a local congregation as a youth and family pastoral advocate. The curriculum is comprised of core courses that will delve into concepts of pastoral ministry to youth and their families, methods of teaching youth, and the role of a pastoral associate. The curriculum goals are completed through courses in topics of: Christian Faith Formation, Program Design for Youths and Student Ministry, Teaching Youths, Succeeding as a Congregational Ministry Associate, Pastoral Care of Children, and Models of Youth Ministry.
Graduates can use the knowledge they have learned through this master’s degree when seeking positions of leadership in congregations striving to reach youths through the Word of God and community ministries.
Students must already hold a valid Bachelor degree from another college or university.
