About

With the help of academicians and practitioners from throughout the country, the Global Center for Youth Ministry provides training materials and other resources to help equip church leaders who work with young people. The Center was established by the College of Christian Studies and Clamp Divinity School of Anderson University in Anderson, South Carolina, to provide youth ministry resources to assist ministry leaders in U.S. as well as other nations and cultures.

“I am excited about the creation of the Global Center for Youth Ministry and its mission to equip and encourage youth ministers and youth workers in the United States and around the world.  The Center will provide online resources to help youth ministers advance the gospel among youth in their areas of service.  It will also help youth workers unable to pursue formal theological education to receive training in youth ministry and certificates that celebrate their completion of such training.”
