Lead. Disciple. Launch.
Help today’s youth explore God’s word and embrace God’s purpose for their lives. That’s youth ministry, at NGU.
Meaningful Ministry Starts Here
Pursue a variety of ministry-based professions. Youth minister and pastor, of course. But also, men’s/women’s minister, college minister, church planter, and more.
Disciples making disciples is the very foundation of ministry. Wherever God calls you, prepare for a life of fruitful discipleship with a Bachelor of Arts degree in youth ministry from North Greenville University.
What Can I Do With a Bachelor’s Degree in Youth Ministry?
Youth ministry involves working with young people, typically within a religious or faith-based context, to support their spiritual growth, personal development, and engagement within the community.
Youth ministers provide guidance, mentorship, and create opportunities for young individuals to explore their faith, develop leadership skills, participate in service projects, and build meaningful relationships with peers and mentors.

Intentional Internship Meets Fun and Fellowship
Bring your studies to life as you minister to youth in nearby churches. Complete two semesters of youth ministry internships and balance your in-class studies with in-person ministry.
Practice What You Teach
Discipleship begins with teaching, and teaching begins with practice. Learn to teach biblical truths in a variety of settings (think youth group, Sunday school, etc.) through several in-class student-teaching opportunities.

Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
