CYMT offers regional campuses in Tennessee and Texas through partnerships with Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Partner churches are from multiple denominations within a four-hour radius of Nashville, TN and Austin, TX. Acceptance to the program is competitive, as the cohort spots are limited in each region.

  • Coaching: Residents receive one-on-one coaching from a youth ministry veteran to help master and apply critical skills.
  • Classroom: In retreat-style, four times per semester, residents will be challenged to think theologically about ministry and empowered to create ministry programs that evoke deep, life-changing Christian faith.
  • Church: Residents get hands-on experience in a local church where they serve 25 hours weekly as youth minister.
