Ministry with Youth is serious, serious business.

 NTS knows and appreciates that reality.

 So we are offering a unique, online, continuing education opportunity through NTSx for anyone that takes youth, and youth ministry, seriously.

 Join us as we explore key, contemporary, issues in youth ministry. Exploring our relationship with youth in conversation with:

  • Theology

  • Science

  • Race 

Screen Shot 2015-09-17 at 12.12.33 PM NTSx, partnering with Youth Specialties, provides resources curated from recent National Youth Workers Conventions, topics that will resonate with this year’s conference in San Diego and Louisville. The majority of the presentations come direct from the Youth and Theology track, including panel discussions by notable youth ministry leaders like Mike King, Andy Root, Sharon Ketcham, Brandon Winstead, Propaganda, and NTS professor Dean Blevins. Each week includes presentations, online discussion, and recommended supplemental resources.

Seven weeks, approximately three hours of weekly online engagement, 20 hours of life-long learning at your fingertips.

This open, online course begins October 5th and runs through Nov 22nd. Interested? Just register online for a sneak peak Sept 17-30.

Registration required, NTS certificate provided upon completion of the course. Join us!
