Graduate Resident Youth Minister


Seeking a job in Youth Ministry?  Have you considered attending seminary but didn't want to take on the debt?

The Center for Youth Ministry Training offers a debt-free, 3-year Graduate Residency for those called to youth ministry by covering tuition, books, housing, and utilities for the duration of time the resident is in the program along with a monthly stipend of $1,000.  

Graduate Residents gain experience by being placed in a local church while earning a Master of Arts in Youth Ministry from one of our two partner seminaries. CYMT partners with Memphis Theological Seminary and Austin Theological Seminary.  We partner with many UMC churches across Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, and Texas.

As the largest Youth Ministry Graduate Program in the country, we make it our mission to equip youth ministers theologically in the classroom, vocationally in the local church, and emotionally through personal coaching.
