Luther Seminary offers various specializations and courses of study for those interested in pursuing further graduate studies in this field, and for those who wish to use this concentration as a grounding for specific congregational or community service.


The Children, Youth and Family (CYF) Ministry program is for creative people who desire to think theologically by standing deeply in the lived realities of young people.  If you believe that the cultural and personal realities of younger people (and their families) offer an amazingly rich context to ask big questions about God, church, and the world -- you're in the right place.

The programme

An M.Div. concentration in Children, Youth and Family (CYF) ministry is designed for individuals who are interested in a ministry to young people and their families in either a church or para-church ministry context. This degree program provides theology, theory and practice in a holistic educational environment.

Programme Structure

An M.Div. student who is interested in having a concentration in CYF will take six of his/her elective courses and his/her education course requirement in CYF course offerings.
