The National Institute for the Development of Ministries to Youth offers hands-on training in youth ministry leading to a bachelor’s. The National Institute prepares students to minister to youth in a local church, parachurch, or camp setting. A number of the core classes are offered as one-week modules, often taught outside the classroom setting. For example, the Cross-Cultural Youth Ministry module is offered in inner-city Philadelphia at the Urban Hope Training Center, where students can apply immediately the ministry skills they are learning.
The module format makes it possible to bring in instructors and youth specialists from a wide range of backgrounds. It also provides an opportunity for current youth pastors to take classes to enrich their knowledge of youth ministry principles.
