  Welcome to MACU's Youth and Family Ministry Program Page!

It's bigger than a stepping stone. It's sooner than the church of tomorrow. It's deeper than babysitting. It's a call to one of the most difficult yet rewarding ministries in the kingdom. And I pray it's what God has in mind for you.

Almost every person has seen that families have the ability to empower or damage young people's potential.  In my 25 years of ministry, I have become passionate about helping young people and families develop Christian values.  The Youth and Family Ministry program offers the skills to work with families through the life cycle. 

"Introduction to Family Ministry" lays a strong theological foundation for a faithful and relevant ministry to students. "Teaching for Spiritual Transformation" focuses on current trends and practical ways of reaching a postmodern generation.
Even with all the formal academics in place, it's the relationships you will form among fellow Christians who believe in the power of family ministry that will equip you the most.

Student Testimonial

The MACU family ministry program has been a priceless investment for me. Thanks to classes like Youth Ministry Planning and my days in the family ministry program at EricPruitt.jpg (168x181)pxMid Atlantic Christian University have been time well spent. I've learned much from the classes.

I had an opportunity to do my internship through Doxology (a summer recruitment team). I met so many youth ministers, preachers, elders, and leaders in the church. Each week, out of the eight that I traveled, I got acquainted with someone new and was able to watch and learn from their lives. Also each week, I mentored one young man. The connections and friendships that have been made are priceless.  My internship allowed me to get a taste for what youth ministry is really like.

 None of this would have been accomplished if I were not in the family ministry program. It has prepared me for ministry inside and outside the church. This program can do the same for you. So, if you want to learn, grow, make an impact on others and have fun at the same time, join the family ministry program at MACU.
