Crosslands Seminary ~ MA Christian Ministry

Our Seminary course is a rounded theological and ministry training curriculum that has been specifically tailored for those involved in Children’s and Youth ministry. It aims to give you a good understanding of key biblical and theological concepts, and their pastoral and missional implications, with a particular application to help you reach and support families, youth and children with the transforming truth of the gospel in all of life.  Children’s and Youth ministry track will follow a similar pattern of modules as that of the main Crosslands Seminary programme.  Every module will include exercises, assignment choices, and tutorials that have been specifically designed for those involved in working with Children and Young People. CYM students will be tutored through the programme by CYM specialists.
