Youth, Children, and Family Ministry (M.A.)
Research in the past decade has confirmed the importance of a more holistic approach in ministry to youth, children, and their families. In response, Northwest Nazarene University's fully online Master of Arts degree in Youth, Children & Family Ministry prepares those heading into a vocational ministry role as a generational or family ministry pastor, youth or children's pastor, or laypersons desiring advanced training in the context of parachurch ministry, Christian schools or camping.
The Master of Arts: Youth, Children & Family Ministry program is a twenty-first century learning model with a robust study of developmental, cultural, and spiritual formation within a practical theological framework. Designed specifically with adult learners in mind, students can earn their MAYCFM without any residential requirements while preparing to engage our world, both today and tomorrow. YCFM students can choose either a Master of Arts or Master of Divinity track.
