This concentration is designed for students who are interested in bridging their theological and biblical studies with a study in practical theology. Particular emphasis is placed on the context of youth, student, and/or family ministry. To understand the development of the adolescent (typically those between the ages of twelve to mid-twenties) and how to translate the Gospel and Christian Discipleship into their sub-culture is key for students within this concentration.
