The Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies is a ministry education program for adults ministering with youth in both parish and school settings. It equips leaders with the knowledge, skills, practical tools and techniques needed for creative and comprehensive ministry with youth. This two-year program helps to create a common vision for effective youth ministry and build confidence, competence, and credibility in ministry leaders.
The 2021 NCP courses will take place in a blended format that includes a combination of live instruction and asynchronous online learning. Live courses will take place on Zoom with 7 hours of instruction spread out over 3 days. The asynchronous courses take place during a 4-week period of time during which participants set their own weekly schedule to complete coursework through an online learning management system (approximately 2 ½ hours of participation each week).
