Youth Ministry

Between the ages of 8-18, lots of beliefs and habits are created and formed.  These lead to decisions that affect the career, family and life trajectories of the youngest generation.  Parents play the most important role in mentoring and caring for youth in these formative years.  However, there is also a great opportunity for those gifted in youth ministry to have a huge impact in helping to teach and shape the emerging generation.

96% of the world's full-time youth ministry workers are in the United States, even though we have less than 5% of the world's youth population.  The placements in this track are ways that you can invest your background, training and passion for youth into the lives of those with the least access to the gospel.

Magnificent church buildings occupy places of prominence all throughout the city of Budapest. The central location of church buildings in the major squares of the city is reminiscent of an era in which the institution of the church played a significant role in the life of the city, regularly exerting its influence over many aspects of daily life. But times have changed, and the Budapest of today bears the scars of a godless, communist past while ushering in the reality of a post-Christian present.    

Youth Discipleship & Immigrant Youth Outreach

With Germany located in the center of Europe and the expanding European Union, the capital city of Berlin plays a strategic role in the Eurasian continent and even world.

Youth Ministry Worker

The Yanesha people live in over 40 communities in the central Amazon Jungle of Peru. Although these tribal peoples were reached with the gospel by Wycliffe in the 60s, the spiritual awakening has since faded, and the churches are small and elderly. The youth are connecting with the outside world, and even though they may not have electricity, they all know what Facebook is. The churches have little to offer or attract them. Our prayer is that the church would not die with the its founders.
