Residence in Youth Ministry Graduate Program

Today, I shamelessly share with you a little of what I do:

3-Year Graduate in Youth Ministry Residence Program

Graduate Education….
on the Job Training

Students accepted to the CYMT Graduate Residency in Youth Ministry will earn a master’s degree (through Memphis Theological Seminary) while gaining experience in a supervised 3-year practicum as the youth director in a local church.  Each youth ministry resident accepted to the program receives an all-inclusive scholarship that covers tuition, books, housing, and provides a $1,000 per month stipend.  Acceptance to the residency program is competitive and is limited to a cohort of 12 students per year.

Our innovative graduate residency combines four vital components:


You’ll be part of a group of 12 peers. Together, you’ll learn about youth ministry and theology. Each fall, a new cohort is launched joining 2 existing cohorts and the CYMT staff creating a dynamic caring community of 40+ youth workers. You will develop life-long relationships that encourage and support you in your ministry.


The coursework is designed to help you understand more than just what to do in youth ministry. You’ll learn to think theologically about the ministry you lead and have the knowledge to design ministry programs that help students develop a deep, life-changing Christian faith.


Receive regular coaching from a youth ministry veteran to help you apply what you’ve learned and master ministry skills. Your coach will also help your staff and congregation develop a healthy understanding of the role of youth ministry in the life of the church.


Gain in-the-trenches youth ministry experience by serving 25 hours per week in a local church. Working part-time as a youth pastor during your education allows you to put all the pieces together—everything you learn from the peers in your cohort, the professors in the classroom and from your coach
