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 Only program allows ministries to have their youth minister participate in the same curriculum to gain theological training and practical coaching. CYMT partners with ministries from multiple denominations within a four-hour radius of Nashville, TN and Austin, TX. In addition to training and coaching the ministry’s youth minister, CYMT equips partner ministries with the tools necessary to develop sustainable youth ministries and walks alongside them over the 3-year program. Partner ministries pay tuition for their youth minister to receive these benefits.
