Real training for real urban leaders

Irene Cho | Oct 14, 2014

As a youth ministry leader in an urban setting, Tameka needed training relevant to her neighborhood. She needed professors who are putting their heads to work alongside their hands in the trenches with young people in the city. And she wanted to get more practical and applicable training for ministry without having to move out of her neighborhood. Tamika found the perfect fit with FYI's Urban Youth Ministry Certificate program. Watch her story to find out what happened next:


Tameka is one of nearly two hundred leaders from around the country who have grown through studying ​at​ Fuller in Urban Youth Ministry. We​ a​re now accepting applicants for our ​10th cohort, beginning in 2015. Through distance learning and two in-person intensive weeks over the course of two years, you can be part of the only accredited graduate-level Urban Youth certificate program in the country.
