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 or ministries, and emotionally through personal coaching and peer interaction.
CYMT partners with churches and ministries from multiple denominations within a four-hour radius of Nashville, TN and Austin, TX to place incoming graduate residents for 3 years of practicum as youth ministers.
Training-only residents receive practical training and earn a Master of Arts in Youth Ministry through our partner seminary while they work at their church or ministry.
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.
