Exploratory Weekend

Experience a glimpse of what life would be like
as a CYMT Graduate Resident.


Explore Your Calling with CYMT

Our CYMT ‘Exploratory Weekends’ have traditionally been a time for interested individuals to learn more about CYMT by experiencing the residency in real-time during one of our academic intensives. These weekends have helped individuals discern whether CYMT is the right next step in their journey and to connect with current residents, professors, and alumni. Due to COVID, we unfortunately will not be hosting our traditional Exploratory Weekend this year. However, we are excited to offer some experiences virtually so those interested in our program can still experience what it’s like to be a resident in CYMT.

Any questions, please email Dea here.

If you really want the inside scoop on the Graduate Residency in Youth Ministry, join us for a free Virtual Visit! Twice a month, we host free informational Virtual Visits over Zoom where you can hear from current residents, staff, professors, or alumni. You will have a change to ask questions about their experience in the program, and speak with our admissions staff.

You’ll be able to sit in on courses to hear first-hand the material that is covered while you are a resident in CYMT. We try to have plenty of options for classes, with the professor’s discretion.

We want you to know that community is important to CYMT and that always should include some fun! Our CYMT community is more like a family and each intensive we always include a fun opportunity to let loose after classes.. Each month we will have something offered such as lunch and/or coffee with current residents,  Jackbox games, etc.
