Youth and Young Adult Ministry Studies
Andover Newton trains leaders for work with youth and young adults. This includes a variety of contexts, ranging from parish settings to college chaplaincies and beyond. ANTS students may take courses at Andover Newton and through the Boston Theological Institute (BTI), and auditors may take courses at Andover Newton.
In addition, students may work with youth and/or young adults through field education placements and off-campus service projects. Student participants in international travel seminars sponsored by ANTS and the BTI often study or serve among global Christian communities with increasingly younger populations.
In past years, various Andover Newton offices have hosted events for confirmation classes, for youth mission and service groups, for college chaplains, and for persons interested in Hip-Hop and Faith, Taizé worship, and other new ways to worship and witness.
Although the Certificate in Youth and Young Adult Ministry Studies is no longer being offered, Youth and Young Adult Ministry is included among the many non certificate programs which are sponsored by the BTI.
