B.A./B.Th. Youth Ministry

Overview

The Youth Ministry focus combines 28 months of Horizon’s Pastoral Leadership program (includes 4-month internship) with a 1-year Youth Care Worker’s Certificate from Saskatchewan Polytechnic.

Students graduate with both a B.A. from Horizon and a Certificate from Sask Polytech, opening the doors to either professional ministry or service in the public sector. Those wishing to graduate with the B.Th. designation must additionally complete two courses in biblical languages (Hebrew 1 and 2 or Greek 1 and 2).

With solid Christian worldview formation, students will be prepared for a career in community and school-based youth programs, residential treatment centres, recreation programs, home-based care, children’s and youth advocacy, or community development.

Duration: 28 months at Horizon*

+ Youth Care Workers Certificate

*Month duration is estimated on average full-time completion rates of 10 courses per 8-month period. Actual completion rates vary based on individual student course loads.
