  • SOC 715 Sociology of Youth in North America

    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.
My experience at Briercrest was great—they were flexible with my busy schedule, affordable, and practical. The courses directly impacted my ministry and help me leverage the call in my life to where I am today.
