This course addresses the need to understand today's rapidly changing world of children and teens as a prerequisite for effective youth ministry. Students develop an understanding of today's youth culture, along with the skill necessary for continued assessment of youth culture as it changes. This course prepares students to increase their ministry effectiveness by equipping them to view and practice youth ministry as "cross-cultural" ministry.
Note: Students with credit for YF 715 Understanding Today's Youth Culture will require permission from the Registrar to take this course for credit. This course may count as a Christian Ministry elective.
