The MA in Youth Ministry is to train and equip youth leaders in Ethiopia and beyond to be mentors of other youth and to empower them with skills to become Disciples of Christ and Transformers in their communities. The MA degree program in Youth Ministry is an integral part of a comprehensive Christian Education focusing on reaching the young people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This contributes towards meeting the spiritual as well as socio-economic needs of the youth in a holistic approach weaving together the Biblical and theological insights in tackling the contemporary spiritual, social and economic problems rampant among the youth.
This program will not only equip local church youth workers, but it will also equip and train youth leaders with the appropriate credentials to teach the course material at the bachelor and diploma levels across Ethiopia and beyond. The need for quality academic, theological training for youth workers is possibly the greatest need of the local church today.
