What the BA in Youth Ministry Leadership Offers
Designed for working professionals and delivered at one of Eastern’s Greater Philadelphia area campuses, our blended online delivery model combines the rich learning environment of a classroom approach with the convenience of online distance learning. The majority of the courses in this program are offered 100% online. One course (not required of Young Life partner students) requires a one-week residency in late May in the Greater Philadelphia area at some point of their time during the program. This course will include traveling to various ministry sites to interact with youth ministry professionals in the field.
Our youth ministry faculty are all experienced practitioners who bring to the classroom practical expertise as well as youth ministry scholarship.
