 About the National Certificate Program

 YM-NCP.jpgThe Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies is a ministry education program for adults in ministry with youth, ages 10-19, in both parish and school settings. It equips leaders with the knowledge, skills, practical tools and techniques needed for creative and comprehensive ministry with youth.

The Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies program includes eight two-day courses offered over two years. The aim of the program is to promote personal, spiritual and ministerial growth. The first year courses cover youth ministry principles and practices, and leadership theory, processes, and skills. Courses in the second year focus on fostering the faith growth of youth through pastoral care, justice and service, prayer and worship, and evangelization and catechesis.
