|Description:||The complexity of our society requires youth workers who are personally mature and grounded in truth and who possess a wide range of skills. Youth workers not only plan events or lead group meetings, they also enter into the lives of youth and their families and learn how to assess needs and provide assistance for the whole person in context. Educational programming, basic counselling and referral, spiritual guidance, deep knowledge of the church, and community involvement are all required.
Graduates of this program are equipped to enter into pastoral positions in Youth or Family Ministries, a variety of outreach ministries and camp settings, youth related social service agencies, or positions within the educational system requiring skills in personal care and educational techniques. - See more at: http://www.heritagecambridge.com/college/college-programs/church-ministry/#sthash.GXIQgkeg.dpuf
