The CYF Ministry concentration provides students with academic courses, community discipleship, and ministry experience that prepares students for leadership in various ministry settings.
M.A. students -- residential or distributed learners -- can choose to pursue a CYF concentration.
CYF is interested in creative people who desire to think theologically by standing deeply in the lived realities of young people. We believe 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. The CYF concentration hopes to create a mutual learning environment through Intensive Courses, attention to Community, and integration around Contextual Learning as an environment to explore new ideas. We see CYF as a kind of laboratory where students can design, rethink, and explore in the context of CYF ministry.
All M.A. in CYF students are engaged in leadership in contextual ministry site. Residential CYF students typically work part-time in a ministry position in the Twin Cities. Distributed CYF students work part- or full-time in a ministry position in their area.
