Urban Youth Ministry Certificate

The Fuller Youth Institute is committed to ongoing investment in urban youth workers and the specific needs and concerns that arise in ministry in urban contexts. We are so committed that we have developed one of the only graduate-level Certificate programs in the country that trains leaders specifically for urban youth ministry.

Partnering with Fuller faculty, urban ministry organization leaders, and front-line youth workers, we continue to conduct research and provide needed resources specific to urban ministry. Dr. Jude Tiersma Watson developed a Self-Care Toolkit for urban leaders, available free from our website! In the mean time, learn more about our research and access resources, or watch the video above to see what it’s about.
