Bridging Theology and Practice

For more than 25 years, the Institute for Youth Ministry has bridged theology and practice in youth ministry through research, programs, events, and resources. We form ministry leaders who work with youth, support emerging scholarship, and collaborate with Christian congregations. In all that we do, we bear witness to God’s just and creative movement in the world.

Youth leaders, we will help you reimagine your ministry with our digital and hybrid programming.
