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.
CYMT partners with churches from multiple denominations within a four-hour
radius of Memphis, TN and Austin, TX to place incoming graduate
residents for 3 years of practicum as youth ministers.
Training church residents in the Training Church Program can receive
practical training and earn a Master of Arts in Youth Ministry through one of
our partner seminaries while they work at their church.
Already have a youth minister? The Training Church Program allows churches
to have their youth minister participate in the same curriculum to gain
theological training and practical coaching.
