A TIME TO HEAL: TRAUMA AND GRACE IN YOUTH MINISTRY
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 in person, digital, and hybrid programming.

What leaders who work with us are saying...
"These are among the most brilliant, creative, and dedicated leaders in youth ministry. They have done the research and background work, they are prepared to adapt to anything, and they are committed to helping your youth, community, and congregation thrive."
"If you’re looking for thoughtful, scholastically minded youth ministry professionals, the IYM is second to none."
"The IYM is the best youth ministry training ground for youth leaders. The staff and leadership are 100% committed."
"The IYM helped me think theologically about youth ministry. Since working with the IYM, I haven't been afraid to ask young people to contribute to the larger church's understanding of God."
