The Graduate Residency in Youth Ministry is unique to the Center for Youth Ministry Training. CYMT creates a whole-person learning environment by nurturing residents academically in the classroom, vocationally in the local church, and emotionally through personal coaching and peer interaction.
The Training Church Program allows churches to have their youth minister participate in the same curriculum to gain theological training and practical coaching. CYMT partners with churches from multiple denominations within a four-hour radius of Memphis, TN and Austin, TX. In addition to training and coaching the church’s youth minister, CYMT equips training churches with the tools necessary to develop sustainable youth ministries and walks alongside them over the 3-year program. Training churches pay tuition for their youth minister to receive these benefits.
Personalized coaching for resident and the church’s youth ministry leadership
Development of 3-year strategic plan for church’s youth ministry
Masters degree from accredited seminary for their youth minister
