Reach Youth with God’s Word

With today’s culture contending for the hearts and minds of youth, reaching young people for the Lord presents unique challenges and opportunities. To prepare for those challenges, students in PCC’s youth ministries program gain a firm foundation in God’s Word with emphasis on effective youth ministry.

The cornerstone of the program, comprehensive Bible training, enables youth ministries students to know God’s Word and learn to communicate its truths. Classes, Campus Church, chapel, and various avenues of ministry provide many opportunities to grow to love God’s Word while being challenged to serve others. Additionally, youth ministries students acquire valuable experience working with the large youth group at Campus Church, or with other local Bible-believing churches.

By choosing an emphasis in church music, digital media, education, physical education, or speech, students receive specialized ministry training for their unique calling of service.

Graduate Perspective

When I decided to go to PCC, I looked at what kind of men PCC was producing in the ministry and liked what I saw. Ultimately, this is why I attended. PCC gave me a good foundation for my ministry because of the many ways to get involved. Being involved and serving in the ministries of PCC helped me gain insight into the practical aspects of the ministry. During my years of interning, I began to see God calling me to children’s ministry.
