On Campus

We offer Masters level youth ministry courses as a part of the traditional on campus schedule of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Students earn seminary course credit with the option to pursue a twelve-hour concentration in youth ministry toward either the Master of Arts in Christian Education or Master of Divinity in Christian Education. Students can also take youth ministry courses as general electives.


All of the youth ministry courses at NOBTS are now online. Our youth ministry courses rotate on a two-year schedule from on campus to online. At least one youth ministry course is offered online each semester.


The workshop courses are offered in a weekend format throughout the year and a week-long format as part of the January Apologetics conference at NOBTS. The workshops focus on specific aspects of youth ministry. Courses include: Communication and Evangelism for Youth Audiences, Implementing Doctrines in Youth Ministry, and Leadership Development in Youth Ministry. Every workshop features discussion oriented classroom time including dialogue with YMI staff and other youth leaders serving in local churches.
